Brown Sugar Muffins Recipe

There’s a lot of muffin recipes floating around little Indiana–but this recipe for Brown Sugar Muffins is now one of our new faves!

Our boys wanted muffins for breakfast which is a pretty frequent cry heard around here. So, I decided to test out this Brown Sugar Muffins recipe that I had copied down before Kid #1 was even alive.

Somehow, I hadn’t made this recipe before–and boy that’s a lot of wasted time! These are delicious served warm with a pat of butter and a drizzle of honey. You know, the way we Nunemakers usually gobble up muffins!
