    These were ok, certainly moist, but the amount of sugar is surely a mistake? I put in half the amount stated and the muffins were still very sweet. Also I think next time a teaspoon, not a tablespoonful, of cinnamon will be plenty. The addition of apple makes for a good taste and texture, though.  -  09 Apr 2017


    Mine turned out amazing! Made it according to the recipe and just added some walnuts to the muffins. So delish! And scented up the house with the best baked bread aroma!  -  13 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
