This recipe was given to me when I was 14 by a friend in Australia. My family and I returned to America that year after living 4 wonderful years there. The friend was a pastor’s wife at our church, and one time when we were at her home she made us these muffins. I loved them so much (and baking was one of my favorite pastimes) she gave me the recipe before we left. They are still my favorite muffins.
