After many tries and many different recipes that just weren't up to par, I finally decided to recreate my own version of a doughnut muffin. It has the taste of a cake doughnut and it's a lot simpler to make. —Morgan Botwinick, Richmond, Virginia
Featuring three types of peppers and a hint of basil, these tender muffins are perfect with chicken. I trimmed down the original recipe to make them low in fat and cholesterol. -Karen Shipp of San Antonio, Texas
New grandmothers sometimes get a little goofy - in my case it was "corny". Since our state is known for growing corn, I planned a corn theme dinner for our grandson's first visit. These golden mini muffins with a rich corn taste were a fun part of the meal.

"If you like the taste of a classic bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich, you will enjoy these muffins," assures Katie Koziolek from Hartland, Minnesota. "You can spread them with softened cream cheese or butter, but they're plenty moist and rich all by themselves."
Tucked into the middle of each moist muffin is a tasty surprise - in the shape of a cube of cream cheese! "The simple filling adds loads of creamy flavor," reveals Denise Nebel of Wayland, Iowa. "The streusel topping is nicely crunchy."
