Pretty much followed the recipe on down, & though it didn't state yea or nay, I DIDN'T peel the potato! Instead I steamed it, then diced it very small before mashing it, as I wanted the flavor & nutrition from the peel to come through! Anyway, after that the muffins were a breeze (pun intended!) to make & they WERE delicious, absolutely so! Thanks for the great recipe keeper! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday recipe tag]

I made these this morning for breakfast and they were so good. I had one that was still warm and I spread some cream cheese on it. I used one large sweet potato and that worked perfectly for the one cup of it mashed. I cooked mine for 14 minutes. Thanks for sharing this tasty muffin recipe. Made for ZWT 7.
