Muffins are the perfect start to any day: sweet, fun, and totally portable. You might like the classics (such as our Best-loved Blueberry Muffins) or you might like a fresh new twist on an old favorite (such as our Chocolate Banana Streusel Muffins or Honey Carrot Muffins).
Baking with margarine produces moist cakes and chewy cookies. For consistent high quality results, remember to use margarine (80% fat), not a spread product.
