i have used this recipe to make all sorts of muffins - sweet and savoury! try it with raspberries and white chocolate chips - mmmmm! oh, and i never put the topping on, too lazy lol
i know i've said it before, but it is SO important - DON'T over-mix your muffins! you only mix a muffin mix until it is just barely combined... if you mix it well you will end up with cakes, not muffins.
