I have been wanting to try this recipe as soon as I read it, it looked so interesting & unusual. Well, it exceeded my expectations! The zesting and fig chopping were well worth the effort. I shared them with some friends and one reported, "I think this is the best muffin I've ever tasted!" I did mix whole wheat and unbleached, used the goat cheese and just 2 tablespoons of cream cheese to mellow the goaty flavor a bit. I also like the idea of adding walnuts, perhaps chopped & mixed with a little of the sugar on top!
