"Excellent topping! Made 11 muffins. I baked them at 350 for 17 minutes. I reduced the sugar to a little less than 2/3 cup, but still found the muffins to be too sweet. I will definitely make them again with less sugar and will add nuts. This is a keeper!"

"What a light muffin! A flavorful light cupcake-like muffin topped with delicious crumble. This simple recipe delivered on a great crumb top. They looked pretty and kept nice for a few days. Great for a mid-morning snack. Made according to directions, using paper-lined cupcake wrappers. Tasty treat!"
