Reviews for Maple-Drizzled Apple Muffins
"Loved them!! Followed exactly, except stirred chopped nuts into the batter... thanks for sharing!!"
"I had high hopes for this recipe. These muffins are pretty sweet and I even opted to leave the icing off. This recipe really makes 13-14 muffins. I made 12, as suggested, and was concerned about the batter nearing the top of the cups. After baking the tops stuck to the top of the pan. I dont always use liners, but with this recipe I would and divide the batter as needed. I rated it a 3, because I love oat and apple baked goods. I would try again, reducing the sugar slightly and using liners."
"Five minutes after I placed the muffins in the oven...I found the melted butter! After baking for 17 minutes, the resulting "mistake" had a very nice texture and taste. I will not be adding butter to this recipe again. I've made this recipe correctly many times and it, too, is a five star rating."
"Served these to brunch guests and they were a hit! Thanks for sharing."
"Only thing I did differently was stir 1/2 c. chopped pecans into the muffin batter (which gave me a couple extra muffins). Although I usually prefer less sweet muffins, the flavor of these was wonderful! Even my one child who doesn't really care for muffins ate two!"
