MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 2, 2014

Five minutes after I placed the muffins in the oven...I found the melted butter! After baking for 17 minutes, the resulting "mistake" had a very nice texture and taste. I will not be adding butter to this recipe again. I've made this recipe correctly many times and it, too, is a five star rating.

Delicious! I had to hide one from my family so I could at least get a taste.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2011

Only thing I did differently was stir 1/2 c. chopped pecans into the muffin batter (which gave me a couple extra muffins). Although I usually prefer less sweet muffins, the flavor of these was wonderful! Even my one child who doesn't really care for muffins ate two!
