    Just made these and OMG they are delicious, Recipe is easy to follow and muffins came out pretty and tasty. Not only did my family like them, but I also often share baked goods with residents at a local nursing home where they were also consumed with enthusiasm. Thank you for taking the time and effort to share your recipe! Love!

    This recipe sounds very close to one I had 30 years ago to make bread or loaves. Do you think I should make any changes to make a loaf?

      You would just have to increase the baking time.
