    I used one large cooking apple little sugar and a drop of water instead of tined apples and part cooked them after chopping to about 10mm square I got very good reports for these muffins  -  22 Apr 2015


    These were great! I didn't have any walnuts, but they still came out wonderful. I found that the recipe made about 28 muffins and that it took me a lot longer to cook them than I was expecting. I thought the oven ought to be a little hotter. They were wonderful right from the oven and then cold later. Yum!! I will definitely make them again and again.  -  02 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The best muffins I ever made. I did add 1 tsp. cinnamon to the batter and used Jumbo muffin pans. The baking time then inceases to 30 minutes.  -  05 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
