Notes

I find that making a smaller muffin (1/8 scoop) makes for a better finished muffin.  It is difficult to get the middle to firm up well otherwise.  I have also had great success making this batter into a bundt cake and making them into doughnut shapes in a mini-donut machine called "Babycakes."  Evey
