Recipe Notes

Many muffin recipes will have you fill the muffin tins 2/3 full or less. These muffins, however, should be piled high in the muffin tins. They will rise less than you expect but this will result in a good-sized, hearty muffin with a big crown. Perfect for an on-the-go breakfast that will keep you satisfied until lunch.

"The smell of good bread baking, like the sound of lightly flowing water, is indescribable in its evocation of innocence and delight."
