This recipe is one of First Lady Dianne Bentley's favorites. These muffins are well known among her family and friends. When her granddaughters come to spend the night, this is always their breakfast request. For early mornings during the Bentley gubernatorial campaign, these muffins were a staple, delicious and easy to take on the go. Now she even makes them in the Governor's Mansion and has chosen to share her popular recipe with everyone.
