Light and fluffy and oh so delicious. I used whole wheat flour for 1 of the 2 cups of flour called for. I replaced the sugar with 1/2 cup of honey and therefore, reduced the oil and milk to about 3/8 cup each. I added dried cranberries for the fruit. Fabulous. They also froze extremely well.

The recipe directions did not include adding the baking powder so my first batch was a huge waste of time and ingredients! I turned around and made a second batch and was disappointed.. These muffins were dense and not very flavorful. The best part was the glaze. Will not make again.

I followed the directions, but they never mentioned the baking powder. The dough was in the muffin cups when I discovered the error and dumped it all back in and added the B.P. Needless to say, the muffins were not the best. Should I try it again? The glaze was excellent.
