"Nice hearty muffins"

Reviewed Mar. 2, 2011

"These are some of the most delicious muffins we make at home: even the kids love them. Slightly sweet and an enjoyable cruchy top. They don't last long!"

Reviewed Jul. 18, 2008

"These seemed a little dry. Next time I think I would add a little more oil. I did make a crumb topping which I put on them before I baked them."
