"My kids loved these muffins and so did I. I only used cinnamon not the other spices and I did not sprinkle sugar on top. They were almost all gone before they cooled!"

"I made these for a Labor Day snack. They were delicious. I didn't have cloves so I used pumpkin pie spice instead and omitted the powder sugar. They were full of flavor and no one could eat just one!"
