Sweet Onion Muffins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Barb in WNY

A recipe that I've had for years. Baking time depends on the size of the muffins.

Top Review by Dixie from Kansas

I was looking for something different and ran across this recipe in my taste of home cookbook. I didn't see this as working but after reading the previous review I decided to make it. They are very good. I thought the sugar may be too much but it wasn't and I thought it called for too many nuts but it was wasn't. I didn't have enough walnuts so I used pecans with it. I also had to add some milk because I thought they were too thin. I will be making the again. We loved em.
