I was in a rush to find a recipe for muffins to surprise my fiance with breakfast and chose this one based on the rave reviews. The only fruit I had on hand were frozen peaches (so I omitted the apples, cranberries, figs, and hazelnuts). I also substituted cloves for ginger and margarine for butter, then put a vanilla/cinnamon sugar mix on top. However, everyone who tasted these muffins said they were the best thing I have ever made by far...they are very critical and said they wouldn't change a thing! The bottom line: this is a great base recipe which tastes great despite substitutions...everyone appreciated the complex well-blended flavors. :-)
