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!
this are you tasty but they are messy and they dont rise up very much.
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!
Amazing muffins. If you are looking for a decadent muffin to serve guests, or just as a special treat, you really should try this recipe. I made these exactly as written and I wouldn't change a thing. The crumb topping is so out of this world that the muffin itself does not need any added spices. The two were a perfect balance for each other. Moist, flavorful. Grease your muffin tins very well and fill the cups to the top as directed, and you will obtain gorgeous, huge muffin tops that hold all of that spectacular crumb topping. It took a few minutes of careful excavation to remove them from the pan with the tops intact, but letting them cool for about 10 minutes helped.
My daughter entered these for her first year of 4-H foods and won Reserve Champion!! She added 3 cups of apples, 1 1/2 t cinnamon & 1 t nutmeg to the batter and 1 t cinnamon and 2 dashes nutmeg to the topping. She made several batches as they were easy to make and she never had any leftover. Everyone loved these!!
I made this recipe twice. The first time I thought it could use a little more cinnamon taste to the batter, so that next time I mixed a little sugar and cinnamon and tossed the apples in this and then added them to the batter. I made these for a fund raiser at work and they got rave reviews. I am anxious to try the recipe with blueberries.
I thought that these were great. I didn't read the reviews before making them so I didn't add any extra spices to the batter. They were ok coming out of the oven but the next day they were super good and moist. Also, you only need to make half the topping cause even after I generously topped my 15 muffins, I still had lots left over!
these are gorgeous muffins! made em exactly as posted and they taste good, but everyone was right about the spices. ill definitely add a little cinnamon and fresh nutmeg to the batter next time. great recipe
