    Sassy in da South's Note:

    This is a favourite with the grandkiddies and me too! For a change in pace, add cinnamon to the butter/sugar mix for rolling. Also, thinking you could add a dollop of your favourite jam before completely filling the cup (havent tried that yet).

      This were OK. They did not have a donut (or old fashioned donut) consistency - more like regular vanilla/plain muffins. I don't think I will make these again.

      I just made these for my daughter's "Muffins with Mom" event at school, and they were fabulous! They stayed moist and somewhat cakey, and the sugar on top set them off nicely. I doubled the recipe and I did add a pinch of cinnamon. I also accidentally used Vanilla Nut & Butter Flavoring for 1 of the 2 teaspoons of vanilla that the double batch called for, but they turned out great. I really love PunzeePuss's idea of adding jelly to the middle, and I think I will try this next time. Thank you for posting! They are great!

      Sooo simple yet sooooo good! I decided to make a "test" batch and changed the measurements to make 15 (but then only make twelve BIG muffins). I then added a little reduced sugar strawberry jelly to most of them which took it to a whole new level! With or without the jelly, my friends, son and I couldn't get enough. I plan on making a few batches of it for his birthday party this weekend and make different flavors!
