Absolutely terrific recipe. I made these for the crew I work with and the men came back asking for the recipe. Nice texture, the cream cheese filling stays soft even the muffins are cool, and the praline topping is terrific. I doubled it the second time I made the recipe for even more crunch and flavor.
Absolutely delicious! Made these for my family and they loved them.
These were very tasty and moist! I used almost all applesauce instead of oil, and I added some allspice, cloves and vanilla. Thank you for sharing!
mmmmm. yum add a bit of nutmeg
Great recipe! These are perfect to serve to company or give as gifts, but I would easily be able to eat them all by myself! I also doubled the topping & added a splash of vanilla extract to the batter & filling. No need to buy expensive scented candles or potpourri... just bake up a batch of these muffins!
