I followed the recipe for everything except I added more spices (clove, fresh nutmeg, ginger). When making the batter, I accidentally dumped half of my container of cinnamon into the bowl. I tried to retrieve as much as I could but I should have just left it! [And then I should have added even more of the extra spices I put in!] The muffin is bland even with the extra spice. Every single one of them burned a bit on the bottom, even though I baked at 350 instead of 375 for 20 minutes. And yes, I have an oven thermometer, so I know the oven is accurate. Had no problems with the cream cheese part, however it was bland as well. The strudel part (which is usually my fave part) was also lackluster. I cut the bottom 2/3 off and kept the very top of the muffin. Honestly, I don't think even those will get eaten though. I would not make these again - I feel like I wasted my time and my money.
