Reviews for Apple Pumpkin Muffins
"Delicious! I reduced sugar to one and a half and added 1/8 tsp of ground cloves. Turned out moist and fluffy. Could probably reduce the sugar to 1 cup and they would still be awesome!"
"I used whole wheat flour, cut the sugar to 1 cup, used Greek yogurt instead of oil, used 3 cups of apples, added a few raisins. I was surprised with the long cooking time, but it is perfect.Good muffins, although I still find them quite sweet, likely from the additional fruit. My family is quite happy with them."
"Followed recipe exactly, down to the cooking time, and they turned out perfect! So delicious. Nice, full, round shape; moist, but fluffy texture. They only thing I wish I'd done differently--as another reviewer also mentioned--was be a bit more generous with the apples (I didn't actually measure those). I might also try adding some clove spice next time too."
"Moist and delicious... Especially right out of the oven, but still great when cooled."
"A good flavor combination, very moist and pretty easy to make. Be generous with the apples. I wished that I had added more. I also added a few dashes of ground cloves. Smells so good!"
"These are delicious. When I was mixing them, I thought it was going to be way too dry, but it turned out not to be. These are moist and very flavorful. A few changes I made were adding 1 and a half cups of sugar rather than 2, it seemed like too much but sprinkled the tops with sugar in the raw. I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour, and couldn't find any nutmeg in my cupboard so I used pumpkin pie spice."
"Delicious....and leaves the house smelling yummy too! Will make again FOR SURE"
"I am sure it was the elevation here in Colorado (I made as directed, w/o adding additional flour for altitude), but these muffins did not come out moist. In fact, sort of dry. :( Love the idea of pumpkin and apple though-fantastic combo for autumn, and the spices are just the right amount. Recipe made enough for 2 dozen regular size muffins too, which was fantastic."
"These are great!! I baked them in x-large muffin pans and a mini muffin pan."
