      We tried these and they are good, however I wouldn't add quit so much cinnamon next time.

      There is a star next to the amount of sugar, but I don't see any reference to it anywhere in the recipe. What were you trying to signify there (more or less to taste; can use substitute; etc)?

      Yes, you can , but it depends on what brand of powdered eggs you're using, it ranges anywhere from 2- 4 tablespoons Per egg. Just follow the reconstitution directions on the package.

      How would I need to adjust this for baking in high altitudes? My son and his bride live in Salt Lake City and I would like to make and send some to them.

      I would love a smaller quantity for the first time trying this recipe. I have some fresh cranberries in the fridge in need of rescuing before they spoil. An orange cranberry muffin is a good place to save them. Thanks!

      could you substitute with self rising flour eliminate the baking powder and soda and would you still need to add the salt?

      When I bagged up the mix I used 2 ¾ cups of the mix and added ½ cup dried blueberries. It makes about 14 muffins. This is perfect for my family of four.

      I found this, let me know if it helps.

      Self-rising flour is all-purpose flour with baking powder and salt added. To make your own, combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

      Hi, I would love to try this but I'm allergic to powdered milk, is there a work around for that? Maybe leave it out and add more milk per batch when I use the mix? And I'm also curious about the asterisk next to the sugar, what does that mean? Thanks

      I've made these twice now, the 12 muffin size recipe, adding just blueberries. The first one something went wrong (who knows, my boys were helping), it was way too dry so I added more liquid which resulted in overmixing. No one liked them, and oil had soaked the muffin liners. Seeing as how I now had a bunch of ABC mix, I tried again!
      This time I waited until my boys weren't home, and the batter was a correct consistency. I used slightly soured raw milk instead of water, halved the oil, and added a 1/4 c of sugar. I also used dried blueberries this time which I soaked for a little while. I was super careful to not overmix. Man oh man- truth be told I've never made muffins that I actually liked, the kids would eat them okay though. These were AWESOME though! The cinnamon is unexpected and perhaps a bit strong, but it made a lovely fall-flavored blueberry muffin. Wanted to take the time to say these were a huge hit, thank you so much!
