        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
