When my sister and I spent the night at our grandmother's house, we often requested these muffins for breakfast. Today, I bake them for my kids. The very aroma is a trip down memory lane.—Kris Michels, Walled Lake, Michigan

"Made this loaf tonight. Was totally way too crumbly when sliced. Made a huge mess all over the place. Needs more oil. Was dry & needs more eggs to hold it together. Tasty but I will have to improve on this somehow - just falls apart. Should be called Crumb loaf. Going to double the amount of oil and use 3 or 4 eggs next time & add vanilla. The taste is good."
