    PaulaG's Note:

    These muffins may have slightly different ingredients but the end result is a wonderful rich, moist muffin. The sugar sprinkled on top before cooking gives a slightly sweet crunch and cracked glazed appearance.

      I used only all-purpose flour for this recipe and, because sorghum is unavailable, here, subbed molasses instead, which worked out fine, although it may have made the muffin a bit darker in appearance. The muffins were very nicely-flavoured - the spice /cocoa/citrus combo coming out well. Good rise, and tender crumb. Excellent accompaniment to a cup of hot coffee!
