    Shucks!! I was going to try this recipe and I noticed… in the instructions.. it says beat the eggs. But there is no eggs mentioned in the ingredients. Argh! is this a typo?? Makes me wonder about the other comments.. how could their muffins turn out good with no eggs?

      Thank you for noticing this. I recently imported the recipes on the website into a new recipe app. When it completed the import it dropped eggs on some recipes for some reason. I am sorry this happened. This recipe was made in the past, it’s been on my website since 1995. Again my apologies!

    These were really good actually. Light and fluffy, with an angel cake texture or coffee cake taxture. I added a cinnamon and sugar crumb top to these and it was a great mqtch. The muffin is not too sweet at all, which I was happy with. These could be customized numerous ways for sure! The oil could be swapped for butter margarine or apple sauce. The flour can be whole wheat. Very basic recipe that went into my recipe book.!
