These apple muffins are topped with a brown sugar and cinnamon mixture before being baked - just like an apple pie. A lovely treat!
Brilliant, wasn’t sure about the topping but I was so wrong! Wouldn’t change a thing brilliant recipe x - 31 Mar 2018
Ohhhhh my...I am so happy to be one of the lucky few who chose to make these muffins as Jan (the submitter) intended, and refrained from any modifications, especially adding all kinds of distracting spices. I agree with Mollytina and her review completely that the wonderful apple flavor just shines through! And the bit of cinnamon in the topping is just the right amount to complement the apples. (No wonder Jan calls these Apple Pie Muffins!) If I had added all that cinnamon and other spices that others thought it was necessary to do, I would have never known what I was missing! These muffins are refreshingly delicious. The recipe stands, in my book, with no corrections necessary and will become a favorite I'll go back to often. Thanks for your wonderful recipe Jan! - 01 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow, these are awesome! It's like eating apple pie in a muffin! What a perfect name for these moist, delicious, nicely spiced treats. No need for any additional spices, the apple flavor really is the hero here. I wouldn't change a thing! I baked these in Texas sized muffin tins and got a little over half a dozen, lucky me! - 30 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
