A pretty good basic recipe, although the muffins turned out somehow pale and with little aroma when they were freshly out of the oven. The flavor of my choice were 1/2 cup of walnuts, 1/2 cup of diced butternut squash, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Surprisingly it wasn't too sweet. Update on savory muffins: I reduced sugar to 2 tablespoon, added 1/4 cup of pan-fried onion, 1/2 cup of chopped bacon, and 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese in the dough. Considered the amount of grease, I only added 2 tsp of bacon fat and no vegetable oil. The muffins turned out again a little bit pale and with mild dough taste. I think it would need something like parmesan cheese. It is a much better recipe for sweet muffins than savory ones.
