I just purchased this book, and the first recipe I tried was a failure. I tried Lemon Poppy Seed muffins. They sounded delicious, but I was skeptical when I saw it had no leavening like baking soda or baking powder in the recipe. I wonder if this was a mistake because the muffins came out heavy and gummy. In other words not fit to eat. I am an avid baker so am disappointed I wasted all the ingredients.Was this review helpful?

I disagree with my previous post. After thoroughly flipping through this book, I noticed many typos in the recipe. In the lemon poppy seed muffin recipe, for example, what exactly does '1 milk milk' mean? How much??? Also, in primer, the author clumsily attempts to incorrectly say how to subsitute all purpose flour for self-rising flour. She simply says you need 1 tsp less. That is simply wrong, you also need to add salt and leavening!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A GREAT muffin cookbook. Has lots of traditional type muffin recipes along with some creative twists on the old ones. I like this book for many reasons including the following: (a) at under 200 pages this book is not overwhelming, (b) photos of every recipe, (c) excellent organization and chapter headings, (d) good, but brief, info on muffin baking basics in the front of the book, (e) great index.Was this review helpful?
