Wow! These are some rich, yummy muffins! The recipe is wonderful as is.
Whoa! Heart stopping! The only reason the other ratings aren't 10* is that they messed with the formula. Use the cardamom. It's the subtlety of the spice that makes the dough so great....made them on a snowy day for a neighbor and they are the best things I have ever made. My experiment was to use cake flour (better texture) and Next I want to try a mini muffin version. Yum!
These were a big hit with the family. I added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the dry mix as well and had to use ground cloves instead of cardamom but they turned out yummy. My 2 & 4 year old loved them and thought it was funny that they looked like they had rolled in sand :) Thanks for sharing.
Sorry... Didn't care for these much. Found them bland and too dense... ;)
Delicious, cross between a cake doughnut and a muffin. I did not have cardamom so used cinnamon in its place I also added about 2 tsp. of vanilla to the batter. I got 18 regular cupcake sized muffins out of the batter that took only abount 18 min. at 375 to bake. I only needed about 1/4 of butter to dunk the top of the muffin in and then I dunked them into the cinnamon and sugar. Thank you for the great and easy recipe.
These were amazing!!! I can't put into words how good these were - I know this sounds cliche - but I wish I could give you more stars. The instructions, cooking time and temperature were perfect. I didn't want to pay the astronomical price for cardamom, so I substituted cloves. Thanks so much for posting this receipe - a definate keeper!
