Altered ingredient amounts. These are my favourite muffins to make because they are so yummy, quick and easy! I use wholemeal flour instead of just plain, add a cup of sultanas, leave out the salt, add a teaspoon of vanilla essence and sometimes I grate in the rind of an orange. Tastes fantastic, and they freeze really well too. Great to make with kids. - 21 Mar 2011
Made it healthier. it was really wonderful - thanks for posting it! my family really enjoyed them. i added 1 cup of sultanas and to make it even healthier i cut the sugar amount to 1/2 a cup and i didn't use caster sugar, i used raw. i also actually ran out of plain flour, so ended up using 1 cup of plain flour, 1 cup of self-raising and only 1 teaspoon of baking soda (bicarb soda). and they still turned out very well. so thanks! i encourage everyone to give it a go. (its great for those who have cholestrol problems because there's no butter etc in it) - 22 Aug 2009
Altered ingredient amounts. GREAT!!! I added a small mashed banana to the batter. Fill the muffin cases half full and add some chopped stawberries to some, chopped apples to some and dried blueberries to have a little variety. A great on-the-go breakfast for my partner who is on the road all day. - 14 Jul 2008
