I just made these muffins. They looked nice and had a good texture, but they tasted like baking powder. I had to put honey on them just to make them palatable.

Ok, say yum! These basic muffins are a snap to make. This is a fantastic base for just about any addition. So far, I have tried bananas, strawberries, cinnamon, and apple-nut. Thank you so very much for sharing this recipe!

Just a good solid muffin recipe. I used butter instead of shortening with no problem. Got a dozen from the recipe and they will be gone in no time.
