These are very tasty cinnamony-flavored goodies. I'm not sure I'd call them a muffin though. They're more like a heavy cake texture, to the point where I think they'd work just as well baked as a snack cake and iced. Very good, and we really like them. The batter was thick so I used an ice cream scoop to fill the muffin pan. Made for Bargain Basement 12/10.
