"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!"

"My little sister made the recipe she got from school but I forgot to get it from her so I stumbled across this recipe....two words....ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!! The consistency of these where more light and fluffy than my sister's...more of a cake than muffin! I did add my own twist though, a little vanilla flavor to taste:-)....they are great!!!! I'll definitely be making then again"

"Very very good. They are moist, tender and sugary and cinnamonny. They don't last long that is for sure, your won't be disappointed in these little gems. The only thing I changes was that I used reduced fat imperial margarine to dip the tops in and then coat with sugar mixture, save alittle fat and still great!"
