Choice Apple and Banana Muffins

Recipe by  

"This is an excellent recipe where no butter, oil or any type of fat is added. It is not to dry and not too moist. The best thing about them is you can snack on them anytime you wish and how many as you like and not be worried. They also taste EXCELLENT! The glaze is a must."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, salt and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Stir in milk, banana, apples, orange zest and vanilla extract. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes. Check bake time by inserting a toothpick into the center of a muffin. The muffins are done when the toothpick comes out clean.
  4. While muffins bake, combine 1/4 cup white sugar and 3 tablespoons water in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Brush glaze over baked muffins, then sprinkle muffins with as much cinnamon as you like.

How can people rate a recipe badly when they don't follow the original ingredient directions. "I used... and replaced ...with..." You have totally changed the recipe. If you've changed the recipe that drastically, submit your own. It really deceives people when we read bad reviews only to come to the conclusion that the reviewer didn't follow the recipe exactly. Is the ORIGINAL recipe any good?

This recipe didn't work for me. The muffins looked and smelled good when I took them out of the oven, but fell shortly afterward. They were very heavy and stuck to the liners. Maybe they need an egg?

These tasted ok when they just came out of the oven, but overall the recipe did not work for me.

Absolutely terrible. After reading the other less than steller reviews I decided I'd give this a try anyway. I used ap flour and added one teaspoon baking powder. These muffins were still gooey and uncooked after 55 minutes in the oven. The tops were like leather and the muffins deflated after cooling a minute or two. Just plain awful. Maybe the problem is too much fruit or the batter needed an egg. Who knows but I know I won't make these again and next time I will listen to other members reviews more carefully!
