This has always been a family favorite. My grandmother used to bake them for my mother and her siblings. My mother carried on the tradition and shared these yummy muffins with my siblings and I. I enjoy baking them early in the morning when the sun is shinning in my kitchen and I am sipping on coffee. Breakfast is never bad when these muffins are served!
