I was dubious when I saw the ratio of liquid ingredients to flour but these turned out lovely and moist. Needed a bit longer to cook through but a lovely taste and texture. My hubby said they were the best cakes I've made-they taste somewhere between parkin , malt loaf and pumpkin bread. Lovely still warm out of the oven! - 31 Oct 2015
OK, I really wanted to like these muffins. They have healthy ingredients and are fun to make. But, the taste did not appeal to me and my family! I made the first batch, exactly as the recipe said and after one bite did not eat them. A couple of weeks later I thought I must have made an error somewhere, so darn if I didn't make them again. This is a lot of preparation work folks! This time they were a little dry ( I overcooked them to get to the point where an inserted toothpick came out clean) but the real problem was the clove flavor- way too strong. I would leave this out. Second thing- the pumpkin seeds are tough as nails! Why put these on there? Anyway, my very non-picky family didn't finish even one muffin. My opinon, I know some reviewers liked them. - 05 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a good muffin...definitely more like a breakfast muffin than a "treat" muffin. Good, healthy ingredients. Great with peanut butter on them! I didn't make it exactly as stated, instead of adding nuts and raisins, I added a little more oatmeal. Also, I didn't have plain yogurt, so I used vanilla and reduced the brown sugar and eliminated the vanilla extract. Thanks! - 18 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
