Way too much canola oil with only 2 cups of flour- next time I would use 1/2- 2/3 cup of oil -- as Rebeccaaa said they just never seemed to be totally baked. Very tender and crumbly. kaycie39
Wanted to give my son a healthy treat. I only used 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup of maple syrup as 1 cup of oil seemed too much. I also used more spices including nutmeg, ginger and cardamom. Delicious.
Do not use Canola oil..Coconut oil is better for you, do research before cooking with any oil. I use
cinnamon applesauce in place of canola oil.. :)
the taste was nice but the texture bad...i keep on putting it back into the oven and it still doesn't look ready. i baked it on 400 for the past half an hour or more and it still doesn't look ready...
A good recipe to try IF you realize the the 1 CUP of canola oil this recipe calls for is FAR too much. If you follow the recipe as printed, you'll end up with oily flour and sweet potato lumps.
Fortunately my wife and I were working together in the kitchen and when she said, " this seems like too much oil", we checked other similar recipes. Others have stated they use only 1/2 cup of oil or butter. Personally I can't stand the taste of Canola oil so we substitute like many others do. Once made correctly, the muffins come out fine, except a little too sweet for my taste.
