   My grandma never made these muffins, but she could
   have, relates John T. Ham, Jr., of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
   “They're good, old-fashioned grandma quality.  Serve
   them any time of the year, but take along some for a
   breakfast picnic.  Or wait till a picnic draws close
   and bring them out as an end-of-the-day treat.”  At
   least four generations of John’s clan have rated
   Devil’s Backbone State Park near Strawberry Point,
   Iowa, their top picnic spot.
