    spatchcock's Note:

    These are wonderful for just throwing in your favorite ingredients---I don't need any other muffin recipes. Editing to add, based on a recent review: Be sure not to overmix muffins; if you do, they will be tough. They should still be lumpy when you are finished mixing them.
