MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 1, 2013

This is almost the only muffin mix I use any more. Have made all the variations plus some of my own, love love love this mix. Sometimes I am concerned about the amount of butter in which case I use part applesauce without any difference in flavor or texture. This is a great go to recipe, I always have some made up in the pantry.

this recipe is fast and handy nto have around. i made a batch last night and used chocolate chips.. ya my bad i didnt even think that i probably didnt want the cinnamon and nutmeg taste.. but next time ill remember to make 2 of them one big batch with everything and one without cinn and nutmeg. other than that they were nice and fluffy. maybe a tad dry. but that could be on me but i might add a little more butter, milk, or another egg. well see. thanks for great recipe.
