My family loved these muffins. I used a stick of butter instead of shortening I cut the sugar in half and used half whole wheat flour and half unbleached all-purpose flour. I made 12 small muffins and one 9-inch square cake with this- they were small and the cake was thin (shallow) but they were tasty! The muffins were gone before breakfast was officially done. Next time I will probably add nuts and maybe raisins.
People go crazy every time I make this! I often switch out applesauce for the shortening, and it's still wonderfully moist. For something more indulgent, I make a cream cheese icing and decorate with toasted almonds and coconut. This cake is famous!
I used 1 tsp cinnamon reduced the sugar to 3/4 c (it had a perfect level of sweetness) used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white flour and added walnuts. It was very good and I imagine that shredded carrots and/or cream cheese frosting would be delicious.
This recipe is so nice for a healthy treat. I look forward to having a muffin with coffee in the morning completely guilt free!! I substituted shortning for low fat sour cream with a tablespoon of canola oil added a teaspoon of vanilla and substituted regular sugar with splenda blend brown and white sugar.
I made this tonight trying to find a healthier alternative for Thanksgiving cake. This was fabulos! I added 1 tsp vanilla 1/2 white and brown sugars and 1/2 cp vanilla ff yogurt w/1 tbsp canola oil. I also added 1 cp shredded zucchini 1/2 cp raisins and 1/2 cp pecans. Had to bake about 15-20 minutes longer as a muffin so the inside would get done. Great recipe: only 3 points a muffin if you are on Weight Watchers!
I used this recipe to make wonderful oatmeal bran muffins. I usually don't make changes to a recipes without trying it first. However I added an extra 2/3 Cup flour to thicken the batter. The end result was enjoyed by all.
