Reviews forSpoon Muffins
"good base recipe, I added blueberries and doubled the sugar. Taste like pancakes so next time I will serve them warm with syrup."
"I made these tonight for dinner, and they were wonderful! Almost like a dinner roll, but much faster and very light. I didn't have self rising flour, so I used 4 cups flour, 4 teaspoons baking powder, and 1 teaspoon salt. I did only get 24 muffins out of the recipe, and they were rather small. I will definitely be using this recipe again!"
