I couldn't find my muffin pan (recently moved) so I used a 9 inch cake pan and made one gigantic muffin! It looks gorgeous with a huge rounded top. I did make a few modifications based on other reviewers. I used half whole wheat pastry flour and half white whole wheat. Also, 1 teaspoon each baking soda and baking powder instead of 3 teaspoons of the powder alone. It rose sky high. I only had plain yogurt, so I added 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Instead of vegetable oil, I used 1 Tablespoon olive oil and 1/4 cup apple sauce. I tried using only apple sauce to replace the oil completely, but the batter was too dry that way. Therefore, 1 Tablespoon of olive oil was just right in my particular situation. Also, the apple sauce was a nice compliment to the rest of the recipe since it adds more apple flavor. My apple was a bit small, so I added both 1/3 cup golden raisins and 1/3 cup walnuts. For the topping, I added 2 Tablespoons of oats and only 1 Tablespoon of flour. I would have used brown sugar if I had it, but the white worked just fine.
I have yet to taste it because it's 2:30 AM and like a crazy person I decided to start baking because I couldn't sleep. The flavor of the batter was wonderful and the finished product looks great. If it's anything less than a 5 star rating, I will add to this review. However, I think it's going to be pretty amazing. Thank you for the recipe.
