    Super easy to make, but not very flavorful. Maybe some orange juice would help? Still, not sure I'll make this again. I liked that it made a small batch!

    Just bit into my first one and it's delicious! Very moist and good flavor. I used a golden delicious apple.

    I found after mixing everything the batter was too moist and even after it baked for the stated time they were still wet inside, so I tried to bake a little longer but it only over cooked the edges, center was still moist and I see someone else had the same problem.

    I overbaked these little muffins somewhat and they were still moist and lightly sweet, if a bit dark. The banana and apple are a bit faint, but you can taste them. I doubled the recipe to share with visiting friends and had no trouble. They are a bit plain, though; a drizzle of white glaze would dress them up nicely.

    I didn't have allspice, so I substituted my favorite, pumpkin pie spice. Really, really great recipe. I really enjoyed it.
