I just removed these from the oven and they smell heavenly! Can hardly wait 10 minutes to try them. I didn't have paper liners, so the muffins stuck to the pan. But they are so moist and tasty, that really doesn't matter. Thanx Kitten for a wonderful recipe that will be used again and again. turbotess
