"When I made the batter for these muffins it seemed a little runny, but I was sure I had followed the recipe accurately. They came out flat on top with some, fallen in the middle. They were not a big hit at our house."

"I made these minus the bacon(!). They were VERY good, however the tops were flat, so IMO they would definitely be a "family" recipe, not one I would bake to give away."
