    Andi the grate's Note:

    I found this recipe on, it was posted by Peggy Trowbridge Filippone. But one of the reviewers on that site said that it was originally a Julia Childs recipe. I'm reposting it here because the other site isn't open for reviews. I've made this recipe, and it is amazing, the muffins are rich and moist. I had trouble getting them out of the paper liners, and the were a little concave, but incredibly delicious.
