    This recipe was shared with me by my friend, Sharon. She was given the recipe by her mother. Everyone who has tasted them will agree that they are the best muffins ever! It's probably the tablespoon of coffee.

    So easy and definitely a hit with kids and adults alike. Esp yummy straight out of the oven when they're still crispy and warm. Agree though, I'd double the amount of coffee next time as no one could really taste it.  -  13 Jun 2013


    These were fine but next time I think I would make them total "adult" muffins and maybe double the coffee!  -  15 Apr 2010


    Loved the result, but I altered the recipe. I used 3 large bananas, 1/4 c oil and 1 cup applesauce (unsweetened) in place of the margarine. I used 4 rounded T of instant cofee disolved in just a litte more that 1 T water, only 1 cup of sugar, and 1/4 cup egg beaters in place of the egg. I made the large muffins and baked them for about 35 minutes, then left them in the oven to cool with the door open. They turned out very moist, and the flavor was wonderful...and low-fat!  -  07 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
