It was time to make some muffins again! I was looking for something quick and easy....meaning, few ingredients that I already had on hand! I've had this recipe bookmarked for awhile in my "recipe box " on allrecipes.com. They were super easy and quick to make and taste more like cake than muffin (but isn't that what muffins basically are? Cake you can eat for breakfast?!). My son and I had to taste these when they came out of the oven nice and warm....delicious! They did dry out a little bit over the next day or so, so they only got a 1 1/2 thumbs up rating.
