This recipe makes a light tasty muffin that stays moist. They're flavorful whether served plain, with butter and jam or dipped in cinnamon-sugar right out of the oven. -Alice Muradliyan, Covina, California

"Super easy to make, but not very flavorful. Maybe some orange juice would help? Still, not sure I'll make this again. I liked that it made a small batch!"

"I found after mixing everything the batter was too moist and even after it baked for the stated time they were still wet inside, so I tried to bake a little longer but it only over cooked the edges, center was still moist and I see someone else had the same problem."

"I overbaked these little muffins somewhat and they were still moist and lightly sweet, if a bit dark. The banana and apple are a bit faint, but you can taste them. I doubled the recipe to share with visiting friends and had no trouble. They are a bit plain, though; a drizzle of white glaze would dress them up nicely."

"I didn't have allspice, so I substituted my favorite, pumpkin pie spice. Really, really great recipe. I really enjoyed it."
