I will make these muffins again and again! I used applesauce for shortening . Double recipe made 14. They were moist and delicious!
Yummmy! Made these this morning, did double the recipe and made 12 muffins. Instead of shortening, I substituted butter, steamed butternut squash instead of pumpkin and used cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and ginger as spices to taste. These muffins were so flavorful~will be making again! Thank you for sharing
We just LOVED these muffins. I too used applesauce instead of the oil, FF buttermilk instead of the canned milk, and Splenda instead of the sugar. DELICIOUS and airy muffins. I made 24 mini-muffins and baked for 11 minutes ~ they were perfect! Made for PAC Spring 2009!
