These tasted better as time went by. Mine were a little crumbly, so I don't know if I messed up on something. The flavor was very good though, and they are very easy to make. They contain ingredients easily found in your pantry. Thanks!

Wow!!! This is a melt-in-your-mouth tender muffin with an amazing layer of cinnamon tantalizing the taste buds smack in the middle. A keeper for sure! Thanks for posting, grandma2969.
