"I love this recipe. So easy to make and ingredients are very basic. Kids at home love it too. You can make these even when in a bit of a rush. Thanks!!!"

"These muffins are spectacular. They are really good. I've tried several recipes, and none came out as moist and flavorful as these. As one other reviewer suggested, I did half a cup of granulated sugar and 1/4 cup of brown sugar. I also used half whole wheat flour and half white flour. Also just barely mix it until the wet folds into the dry."
