The Joy of Muffins: The International Muffin Cookbook Plastic Comb – January 1, 1989

The recipes are very diverse, original and accurate. This is the first book on baking, in which sugar content is reasonable(!), so you get perfect muffins, not too sweet. Indeed the authers suggest using butter in all recipes, but you can substitute it for canola oil without any harm to the taste or texture. I also put at least 50% whole-wheat flour to make the muffins more healthy.
Some recipes are for 20 or 24 muffins, so you have to cut down the proportions twice if you just want a dozen.
Content sections are: Morning Muffins (whose recipe sections are Apple 4, Oat Bran 10, Banana 2, Blueberry 3, Bran 9, Main Course Muffins for Breakfast 3, A Miscellaney of Morning Muffins 7), Between-Meal Muffins 37, Main Course Muffins 33, Muffins for Dessert 9, A Miscellany of Dessert Muffins 26, and Microwave Muffins 8. Some recipes may fit more than one category so there may be slightly fewer recipes than a total of all the whole would suggest.
I agree with the reviewer who wrote that the recipes are accurate and the instructions are complete and accurate. The muffins I've made from the book's recipes have been delicious and easy. I agree with the reviewer that the recipes are generous. The first recipe I used was one that made 12 muffins. When I portioned them into a 12-muffin plaque and baked them, the results were drier than I like, so since then I have been baking fewer but larger muffins and I'm very happy with the result.
This is a terrific book that is reasonably priced, especially considering that one can find used copies in excellent condition.
