    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


    Super moist doesn't need any changes!  -  12 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It was delicious! I add a cup of chopped black walnuts. I also used 4 ounces of vegetable oil instead of the butter and only used 1/2 cup of applesauce. I used a teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of allspice. I made it in a large loaf pan and cooked it for 70 minutes. It was so moist and my husband and I loved it!  -  02 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
