After adding the milk to the creamed butter/sugar/egg mixture, the batter looked sort of curdled. I don't know why that happened, maybe my milk was still a little cold, so my advice would be to make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. Not wanting to waste the batter, I added the flours and followed the rest of the instructions. What came out of the oven were simply delicious cupcake-like muffins.. not overly sweet. Thank you for the recipe.

"Wow!" is what crossed my mind when I bit into these muffins. My muffins were missing 1 egg and 1/4 cup of white chocolate, but already it was fantastic! The texture is very special and unlike of any muffins I have tasted. I'm definitely trying this recipe again with proper ingredients.

I made these muffins for breakfast Sunday morning and my family looked like they had gone to heaven! We love the combination of white chocolate and macadamia nuts, and this recipe didn't disappoint on flavor. I was given strict instructions to double the recipe when I make these again.
