Tastewise, they were ok, but they came out very dry and dense. I think either the temp is too high, or the baking time too high. Maybe both. I made 2 different recipes of mini muffins - one banana and this one. The banana was much moister and lighter textured. Maybe the addition of sour cream to this recipe would help the dryness.

Very bland, just tastes like kind of spiced flour. I would add cinnamon chips, or vanilla or something if I made them again. They really need some flavor!

Just the basic muffin recipe I needed. I made them regular size (adjusted the baking time). I didn't use the topping, but instead served them with orange marmalade. Delicious and quick to make.

Pretty Good. Needs something more on top. Maybe a struesel of some kind.

The tops came out perfectly rounded! I also got about 40 muffins out of the recipe instead of 2 dozen. Very easy recipe with ingredients you probably have on hand.
