    I slightly modified this recipe - used 1/3 of the sugar and wholewheat flour. They were gorgeous and passed the test with my partner who isn't fond of "healthy" versions of food.  -  20 Aug 2012


    These are really easy to make and taste lovely. They are really moist and the topping gives a nice crunch. I made 6 really big muffins with the amount.  -  01 Oct 2010


    Gorgeous recipe. The topping is fantastic. Have made this several times and it's definitely a family favourite. Wish I could stop at just one muffin!  -  14 Jun 2012
