    Excellent... Very tastey...** Ok a few notes.. I leave it up to you.... - I did the mix, all wet ingredients and then all dry ingredients... A normal muffin like mixture. - I used brown sugar in place of regular sugar, taste better.. - I also used 1 cup of regular flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat.. I imagine you can use all whole wheat, if you like. Up to you... - I have to bake them for longer than 17 mins, I baked them for 20-25 mins and they were perfect. - I also added 1/2 teaspoon NUTMEG, as I ran out of ALLSPICE. :-) Ok.. those my notes...  -  12 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A quick easy muffin. Few changes: Used all butter, all brown sugar, did half whole wheat and half all purpose flour, added 1/4 tsp. vanilla and 1 small finely chopped apple, raisens and 1 Tbsp. Wheat Germ. This made 18 medium size muffins. It's a keeper  -  29 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wow, this recipe was so easy and my 3 year old loved it. I lowered the butter by half and added a touch more applsauce. I didn't have allspice on hand, so I used cinnimon and ground cloves. I also used cinnamon applsauce. Very tasty and healty treat.  -  04 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
