I usually make a different recipe for apple muffins, but decided to try something new. I liked the dense texture and not overly sweetness of this muffin. I did add a couple of tablespoons of milk to the batter because it seemed too stiff. The topping was just right, not too heavy to collapse the muffins, and not too sweet either. I would make these again.

Made these with an additional 1/3 cup of milk and streusel topping. Realized 2 minutes after I put them in the oven that I forgot the sugar. I was prepared to dump them in the trash but decided to try one just to see. I was pleasantly surprised to find them pretty good. So I'd say feel free to reduce the amount of sugar. I'm going to try them next time with 1/2 a cup of sugar

I made this recipe twice today. The recipe says it is thick, but that was an understatement, it was more like a really thick dough, so I added a little milk. It still came out very dense and mealy, more like a cornbread in my mouth. My son made it the first time, so there is a possibility he miscounted on flour, but it was still way too thick. The second time I added about 1/3 c. of sour milk in with the liquids and this time it came out very moist and fluffy, completely perfect. I also replaced the apples with frozen chopped peaches the second time and skipped the toppings since I was out of brown sugar. It was still really good. I think it makes a great basic muffin recipe. I'll definitely make this again.

Used granny smiths, and caramel extract in the glaze. More dense than my usual muffin recipes, but we all enjoyed them.

A great recipe for fall! I used gala's, which are my favorite, and left them in pretty big chunks so you could be sure to get the apple in almost every bite!

These apple muffins are dense and moist - more like pound cake than a muffin. You can really taste the butter. I added 1 tsp. cinnamon to the batter and skipped the glaze. I received many compliments on these muffins.
