"Breads & desserts are hard to come by during Passover, and this one is a winner for breakfast, dinner or dessert. Feel free to add some nuts if you like them. NOTE: Baking soda is allowed during Passover from the sources that I have checked. In fact, baking soda & cream of tarter is listed as a substitution for baking powder, which is not allowed unless you buy a kosher for passover brand."

"These are delicious! I made both regular size muffins and mini muffins. The recipe yielded 8 regular and 10 mini muffins. I ran out of matzah meal so I used 1/2 cup matzah meal and 1/4 cup cake meal. This recipe is definately a keeper"
"Very popular with my kids. I replaced the baking soda and cream of tartar with 2.5 tsp of KLP baking powder and I added a cup of chocolate chips."
"This is a superb recipe! Unfortunately I discovered it on the sixth day of Pesach, but I will definitely keep it and make the muffins early next year. I added a "streusel" topping of chopped nuts, brown sugar, cinnamon and threw some raisins in the batter. I think next time I'll add a half-teaspoon salt. The whole family loved them!"
"My wife says that these are the best muffins I've ever made. also, "It doesn't even taste like passover!"
Next time will add choc chips :-)"
"I am starting my Passover cooking and baking early, and I had sad looking bananas. I found this recipe, and wow, it's a real keeper! I made mini ones, though, since I'm having 15 people, and it only took TEN minutes to bake them. Very tasty recipe. I will make them every year!"
"I was a little optimistic with my Passover baking plans this year and overbought on the matzo meal and potato starch. Sushiman uses potato starch all year round for his gravy, but how much gravy can you make, we bought a 500 gram bag of the stuff. Enter Karen's recipe! This is an excellent use of Passover ingredients and should be excellent for the entire year! The matzo meal gives the muffins a more rustic taste, but thanks to the baking soda and cream of tartar it's not so heavy as to be used as a doorstop. Good with a cup of coffee in the morning! I have two batches of these sitting in my freezer now (I TOLD you I bought a ton of ingredients) and we like to take one out on our way to the gym. By the time we finish working out the muffin has defrosted and ready to be devoured. Thanks for the recipe. N.B. You can get kosher for Passover baking soda."
