"I followed the recipe to the core. Only difference was, I baked them over 20 mins because they looked wet. Pulled them out when they looked dry and toothpick came out clean. Unfortunately they turned out soggy and taste awful.. Throwing out! Doesn't anyone here pretest the recipes before publishing?"

"I made these muffins today. They are wonderful. I measured the apple after I chopped it. These muffins turned out wonderful. They were light and very flavorful. I would definitely make again. My batter ended up making 12 standard size muffins, not 6 as the recipe stated."
