"I followed advice from lettuceleaf and agree completely. Next time however, I will not try to squeeze the recipe into a 12 count pan as the muffins ended up looking a little tortured by the time I was able to get them out."

"Really yummy! Muffin isn't overly sweet so the struesel topping is perfect. I used 1 c AP flour and 1 c whole wheat flour and added chopped walnuts to the batter. Will definitely make again."

"I made these at the beach. They were perfect. I did use an extra banana for moisture. I forgot the butter in the topping and no one missed it."

"Very good! I must not have it the butter in well enough because I had flour left on top of some. Tasty, but not pretty. I will melt the butter, I think. Didn't have any buttermilk, but added a teaspoon of vinegar to the cup of milk and let it sit a few minutes. easy."
