The spicy aroma of these muffins in the oven is truly mouthwatering! I've fixed batches for Christmas breakfast...frozen more to snack on later...and sent plenty to school with our youngsters.

"Super quick and easy to make! I used butter instead of oil and my batch made a dozen. Light and fluffy, definitely going in my make again recipe list!"
