Butterscotch Muffins Recipe

Butterscotch pudding gives a distinctive flavor to these muffins topped with brown sugar and nuts. "My son made them for a 4-H competition and they won first-place purple ribbons," writes Jill Hazelton of Hamlet, Indiana.

"These have potential! I only put a half cup of sugar and they were still too sweet. The texture was really weird and the flavor too eggy. Why in the world does it call for 4 eggs? Next time it needs no added sugar and only 2 eggs and 1/4 of the flour changed to whole wheat. Maybe even skip the vanilla pudding mix and just use the butterscotch pudding. That is almost a completely new recipe though I guess!"

"I was very disappointed in these. They are very dense and heavy. I was hoping for a lighter muffin. Not worth the calories."

"These are awesome! I'll cut back a little on the sugar next time since there's sugar in the pudding mixes, but the flavor of these is amazing. They're super easy too-the batter goes together in no time at all. The muffins will be heading to a church bake sale tomorrow-I'm sure they'll be a good seller."

"One of favorite things to do when we have a garage sale is to make up a batch of these muffins to sell. My family members insist on each having one for themselves. They are always very popular. So yummy."

"Very good, very sweet. Not a healthy breakfast muffin, great for afternoon tea or whatever. I only got 13, (large ones), but would suggest that they be made as stated (18). Might even try the mini muffin pans next time. There will definitely be a next time! Jan."

"I have been making these muffins since I first read the recipe in TOH years ago. My grown daughter just asked me to make them, so I am going to include mini-muffins in my Christmas cookie trays."

"My kids and husband loved these muffins. I thought they were just good. We don't care for butterscotch much, but the flavor of these were good. I didn't have any pecans so I skipped that on the topping. These freeze great also. My kids want them in their lunchboxes so I freeze them, then by lunch time they are thawed. They love 'em! Thanks for the recipe."

"These are my family's all-time favorite!!! We have them about three times a month. I have used butterscotch, lemon, and chocolate pudding in them and they've turned out perfect every time. I want to experiment with more flavors soon. I give these a big 5!!!!"
