I have reviewed this recipe previously (see below), but would like to add more comments. First, substituting 1/2 of the flour with whole wheat flour still tastes great. Second, I am more satisfied with doubling the spice amounts (cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger). Maybe not the best thing if you consider yourself a supertaster or like spices to be subtle and not obvious. Third, I used walnuts previously, but hazelnuts ARE better in this recipe. Spread out the chopped nuts on a cookie sheet and toast in the oven at 350 deg for 10 min. These muffins have never failed to impress people!
Here is my old review:
A phenomenal muffin! A hit all around the board. Not having chopped hazelnuts, I substituted walnuts. Also I used dried cranberries (Craisins) instead of fresh. I may decide to try a sour cream or orange juice modification on this recipe.
