MUFFINS MANTECADOS AL COGNAC - Buttered Cognac Muffins

Our muffin tasting continues!

I stumbled across this easy to make adults only muffin in mum's recipe book... it used to be a favourite snack at party's and brought out when the kids went off to sleep (I knew we were missing out on something!) I always remember how sad it was when bed time was called and the laughter and chatter where still swirling around us!  But Mum's good night kisses always made it better...
