Reviews for Morning Muffins
"Excellent recipe. I followed the recipe with the exception of adding a little less brown sugar. These are excellent."
"This is my favorite muffin recipe of all time. I have made it several times for guests and they always request a copy of the recipe."
"The muffins had a wonderful taste but I found the texture to be a bit doughy even after baking them longer and at a slightly higher temp (I know my oven) than the recipe called for. All in All a very good recipe and will make again."
