With all of the ingredients in this recipe I thought that the muffin would be very moist and flavorful. These are just so-so. I would not make again.

My husband and son said these were really good. They usually don't like muffins. I spread a little bit of butter on mine while they were still hot. Yum Yum!!!!!!!!!Sandy
