      I made these with the addition of 1 c. chopped walnuts. Yummy! Also, I put down some batter in each section of the muffin tin, then put some icing in the middle of each, then covered with more batter. It made a delicious surprise to bite into. I also put some of the frosting on the top, as there was some left over. Made 6 lg. muffins that we gobbled up in no time, mind you there was only 2 of us this morning for breakfast!
