This is a very simple recipe to follow, which makes the weekend a lot easier and comfortable. Imagine waking up a nice tray of piping hot muffins right out of the oven. Mmmm…..

      I don’t know why, but this recipe resonated with me when I read through it, possibly because of the interesting technique of working the butter into the flour. I never make muffins, but I wanted something cake-like but not as sweet, so I thought I’d try it. Made these today and just tasted them. Honestly, I didn’t have high expectations, because I’ve had mixed experiences making recipes from amateur chefs on this site. I am here to report that this recipe is one of the most successful and tastiest that I’ve made from Foodgawker. Kudos to you – great job! They’re delicious, and the crumb is perfect. And you’re right – they were very easy to make. I will definitely make these again. Next time I will try a different flavor, but the orange version will be hard to beat. Thank you! – Sara
