    I hesitate to give this recipe even one star. I followed this recipe exactly. Been making muffins since 1968 and have never had anything come out so awful. They not only looked unappetizing, but after cooling down, they were hard as a rock! Went directly into garbage can. What a waste of good ingredients!  -  29 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These came out perfectly!! I made a dozen and they were gone in a couple of hours!! (even my husband who is insulted by muffins in general loved them)I followed the recipe exactly, except that I used vanilla soy milk instead of cream since that is what I had on hand, and I added a little bit more milk until the texture seemed right. I was a little worried because of the bad reviews here, but I remembered reading in "The Joy of Coking",that different flours have different properties depending on moisture content and age and how they are stored:some flour will need more milk, and some will need less, so use your best judgement when adding liquid to avoid hard muffins! Thanks for sharing a super recipe!!  -  09 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These muffins are FANTASTIC! I made a couple modifications based on other reviews...and here's what I came up with: (By the way, I doubled the recipe) I used 3 cups of flour, 1 cup of white sugar, and 1 cup of brown sugar. All other ingredients were just as the recipe calls for. I was concerned at first because the batter was very, very thick...but they turned out wonderful. I took these in to work as a birthday treat for my co-workers and they would not stop raving about them!  -  01 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
