So I've been thinking about muffins for awhile now waiting for the time to experiment with a couple of different favorite recipes I love and wanted to do a little tweaking with.
Finally had the time this morning and made these for my kids and they were the MOISTEST muffin I've ever had!!! I'm so happy with the results and wanted to share. I didn't plan to have a topping on these muffins, but when I saw a cinnamon crumb topping recipe from Heavenly Homemakers I thought I'd try it . So glad I did. This topping really made it even better than I expected! Of course the crumb topping is completely optional, but my kids were thrilled to say the least! I used only 4 tbsp of sucanat and 1 tbsp of butter and it still worked just as well, just doesn't have an excess amount on each muffin. Here's the recipe! Enjoy!
I Hope you'll give these a try and tell me what you think!
