About

Muffins will turn out with flat tops if you follow the above ingredients however when you add "1 cup flour" to the recipe the muffins turn out with a nice crown. This addition improves the texture and flavor of the muffins. This recipe is now one of my favorite muffin recipes. I used substituted golden raisons and walnuts.
