"This was my first time making cinnamon muffins. This recipe was very easy and they turned out great. Only thing I did differently was add cinnamon to the batter and made regular size muffins. I accidentally half melted my butter because I was trying to soften it in the microwave, and I wasn't sure if i messed up the recipe but thank goodness it didn't. The muffins were so smooth and moist. Just perfect!"

"These are very tasty, and they quickly disappeared. However, they definitely didn't make 2 dozen."

"Super easy, not a lot of ingredients and what is on the list are items that most people have in the house already. The taste was excellent. I made these for our school lunches. I followed the recipe but made them into mini muffins. The girls loved them!"
