    Pepita's Note:

    My Mum got this recipe from a can of Carnation evaporated milk in the 80s and it's been a family favourite ever since. It's not listed among the Carnation website's current list of recipes at so I thought I should do my best to save this classic recipe from extinction. The original recipe calls for "1/4 cup shortening"; we use 3 tablespoons of (corn) oil. It also calls for 1/2 cup of maple syrup, but we found 3/4 cup was even better :) We also cut out the 1/2 teaspoon of salt from the original recipe. Use medium grade maple syrup (not the "light" stuff) if possible. Finally, be sure to use *evaporated* milk, not condensed milk!

      I had half a can of evaporated milk left, and this was just the recipe I needed to us it up. I couldn't remember if I had added enough four - so they might have had 1/3 cup extra flour - but they were good anyway. I also added some leftover crumb topping - made them extra tasty I used a little less than 1/2 cup of syrup because mine ran out right then. Thanks for a good recipe!

      OK, maybe it's not fair for me to rate these because I made quite a few changes, but I wanted to give credit where credit is due. These came out very tasty and this is what I did...I added about 2 TBSP brown sugar, 1/2 tsp maple flavor, used part butter and part shortening, added a couple TBSP of applesauce, and used Egg Beaters in place of the egg. Then, I sprinkled some raw sugar on top the muffins before baking. After baking and cooling, I drizzled some powdered sugar glaze on top. MMMM! Next time, I might add just a touch more sugar to the batter because I like my muffins sweet. Thanks for the recipe! It was a great starting point for me.
