    Thanks Laura! These are very popular, never fail, very moist muffins. Hope your readers enjoy them too. There’s been a muffin-o-thon of sorts happening with the bloggers I visit, in the last few days. Probably a quick way to have fresh, delicious baking with minimal oven time (way tooooo hot for that in most areas of US and Canada).

    Cheers, G
