Top Review by Chef Howe

This is the recipe from The Excelsior House in Jefferson, Texas. For more than one hundred and ten years, the Excelsior House has been privileged to serve food to its guests, several of whom have contributed recipes that were old when Jefferson was a sprawling, lusty River Town. I am excited to have this wonderful recipe show up on Recipezaar. These wonderful tiny muffins are served with breakfast on Sundays at The Excelsior House. Thank you Tonkcats for posting this wonderful recipe for all of us to share.
