      Very good! We enjoyed these for breakfast this morning. I made as written but used standard size muffin cups and baked for approximately 20 minutes. Filling them quite full, I got 21 muffins; could easily get 2 dozen standard-sized muffins. I also added some semisweet chocolate chips...yum! One note, I had quite a bit of the glaze leftover so could probably cut it in half. Thanks for posting.
