"My kids loved these muffins and so did I. I only used cinnamon not the other spices and I did not sprinkle sugar on top. They were almost all gone before they cooled!"

"I made these for a Labor Day snack. They were delicious. I didn't have cloves so I used pumpkin pie spice instead and omitted the powder sugar. They were full of flavor and no one could eat just one!"

"I omitted the cloves & nutmeg but they were still delicious. I didn't need to add the confectioners' sugar either. They made a great morning breakfast for our child running out the door for school. I will definitely make them again. We all loved them."
