I put too much butter in the topping and it was runny so just put some on each muffin and mixed it in slightly. They turned out lovely! I didnt get a crunchy topping but instead had a yummy cinnamon filling swirled around inside the muffins! I will try the crunchy topping next time but still great! - 09 Jun 2013
