I just had one of these right out of the oven. Delicious, but a little sweet for my taste. I put half the recipe ingredients in my bread maker on the dough cycle. Also, I'm not sure why you wouldn't cut out the muffins then let them rise for 5 minutes on the baking sheet. ?? I'll be making these again I'm sure.
