Top Review by wildheart

I've always wanted a muffin that TASTES like those famous, 600 calorie muffins, that I could make at home....for less...for less calories. This made 10 muffins in my pans, and next time I will probably substitute all coffee for the liquid. I also added 1 teaspoon imitation almond extract to this; my daughter is allergic to nuts but we love the taste. Thanks for this one!
