Using a large ice scream scoop, scoop batter into muffin cups, dividing evenly among all 12 cups. Bake for approximately 25 to 30 minutes or until muffins are lightly golden brown and the tops spring back when gently touched. Let muffins cool in pan, on a wire rack, for approximately five minutes. Then remove from muffin pan and place on wire rack to cool. Muffins are great served warm, room temp or even cold.
