The pudding mixes make these muffins so moist and yummy! Plus, the recipe makes a lot; great for a special breakfast or treat. Very distinctive flavor. I'd never made muffins from scratch before I tried this recipe - it's how I'll do it from now on!

A very good "from scratch" recipe for muffins! They baked up moist and delicious. I cut the cinnamon in the topping to 1 teaspoon. That worked out good. These are sweet, but not overly so, and the pudding mixes gave them much more substance than the ones I usually make.

They were very good, and I kept going back for seconds. I did find that they tended to just sit in my stomach for a while after eating.
