“This recipe is from the 1993 Pillsbury Complete Book of Baking. This recipe can be assembled the evening before needed and set in the fridge overnight. It turns out beautifully. You can vary the flavorings, additions and oils. The original recipe calls for "oil" and I use coconut oil with great results.”
24 muffins
