I got this recipe from a good friend. The muffins can be eaten anytime, of course, but they are especially popular for coffee breaks and brunches. One thing you can count on...they're really nice and moist!

"While I would indeed make this recipe again I found I had to modify it. There was simply not enough flour to go with all the fruit! I used both whole wheat & white flour but used a total of 3 cups. This also required adding more liquid so I added about a cup of low fat yoghurt and a splash of milk. The ladies in church loved them with these adjustments. Thanks for the recipe!"
