I made this but cut the recipe in half..29 was just way too many.. I got 10 small heavy compacted muffins which didn't taste very good at all..I even added a few tibits of pineapple to the batter for an added flavor. we gave the rest to the birds outside.. they liked it.. sorry.. I followed the recipe completely except for the pineapple
