We loved this! DH and I thought this was a company-worthy recipe. I did not have sour cream, so I used Greek yogurt, which then in turn required adding enough milk or water to bring it to a batter consistency. It was a plus in my book to use the yogurt to make this a better breakfast with higher protein content. I did not have mild molasses wither, just the old-fashioned, industrial strength stuff ;). So I used half the amount and used corn syrup to make it a little less strong. Yummy!

Super different muffins recipe! The spices add such exquisite taste to this dessert. Made mini muffins for finger food at a party and the guests really loved it! These muffins are best eaten the same day, they dry out quickly! I documented the preparation of this recipe myself. I am new to blogging, so any comment or opinion would do me good. Greetings!
