My kids said these were an excellent muffin. I used 1 1/4 cup of sugar and added milk chocolate chips. I soured my milk with the vinegar as suggested. These made 18 muffins and they all wanted them in their lunch the next day. I was feeling a little lazy when I made these, so as another reviewer suggested, I just added my eggs in without separating. Thanks for the recipe.
