Reviews forPeachy Poppy Seed Muffins
"A favorite in our house. Now it is hard to find peach baby food so just puree some canned peaches."
"Have made these for a long time. Today I didn't have baby food peaches, so pureed 3/4 cup of canned sliced peaches, also used 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup Stevia, added a tiny bit more baking soda (as suggested on Stevia package). They are wonderful. I'll keep on mking them this way."
"I haven't made this recipe but read review of "plugginalong" about the tops went flat. That is because there is no baking powder in the muffin. They raised and then spread because of all of the baking soda, like when you make cookies, they raise up and then flatten because of the absence of baking powder. Make again and add a 1/2 tsp. of powder or reverse it and add 1 tsp. of baking powder and 1/2 tsp. of baking soda. That should improve the results."
"I enjoyed the flavor but was disappointed when i put them into mini muffin tins and they came out flat on top. I'm thinking maybe I filled them too full. I made some in muffin tops and they turned out great. I'll make this one again because the flavor was good- I'll just use regular sized muffin tins."
"These muffins are delicious, melt in your mouth. My son made entered them in the fair and won first place."
