Some people... Some people like cupcakes exclusively, while myself, I say there is naught nor ought. There be nothing so exalted on the face of God’s gray earth as that prince of foods… The muffin!

Frank Zappa, Musical baker

The refrigerator light goes on...

These muffins can be made with stevia instead of Splenda. Use 12 packets of Truvia brand for each 1/2 cup of Splenda. Z Sweet brand measures like sugar so you will need 1/2 cup of that product.

Frank Zappa was right! Muffins are great.
