My mother always made these tasty muffins whenever the family gathered at her house. Now they're a favorite of my own family, and of my in-laws as well. —Carolyn Riley, Carlisle, Pennsylvania

"This muffin is identical to my decades old stand by recipe {from Dysart's Truck Stop in northern Maine} with noted exception; their recipe uses the whole 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree. Increase baking by 5 minutes.

These are a fall/winter tradition with my family. They are moist and delectable. I'll continue to use the whole can of pumpkin. What would I do with the other 3/4 cup anyways?
So here I am, I've broken two of my cardinal rules;
1. Only review recipes you've actually MADE.
2. Don't say "I changed this, that, and , oh that too... We loved it".
So, having made full disclosure, I submit my review :)

"Excellent muffins! Not overly sweet, just right. The pumpkin & apples go great together."

"The delightful topping is essential as these are quite mildly flavored. I baked them in cupcake pans with paper liners and all 24 were burned on the bottom. I can only assume the pans crowded the shelf and the smaller volume ba ked them faster. I think I'd like theapples grated not choppe"

"As with all muffins, just be sure you don't over-mix! They'll definitely be drier and tougher if you do. Once you figure the mixing out, they are FANTASTIC!"

"Delicious muffins! I'd just put them in the oven when I found I'd left the eggs out....then I remembered that I have some wonderful recipes for vegan muffins with no eggs. The no-egg pumpkin apple muffins turned out perfectly!"
