This is a recipe we have had for 30 years. A favorite breakfast treat for our kids. I think we got the original recipe from my aunt. Bet you can't eat just one.

I grew up with these breakfast muffins! One of my earliest memories in the kitchen is "helping" my mom baking these for our family. Yummy and tender. It takes mine about 20 minutes to bake and lightly brown.
