"Made these last night. They were a hit with me and my youngest. Would double the topping next time. Not quite enough. Will make them again. Very light and doesn't sit heavy in the stomach."

"This is a great recipe! I added crystallized ginger in a tiny dice to the tops of the muffins before baking. The additional ginger gave them a great flavor, and a bit of an added crunch to the top."

Reviewed Feb. 18, 2014

"Can these be made with canned pears if desperate and no fresh pears available? I am not a big muffin fan but these look delicious!"
