"These are very moist. Everyone loves them. I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cup. I used a little less pumpkin pie spice. For regular size muffins, they take 20 minutes to bake. For the minis, it takes 11 minutes."

"This muffin is identical to my decades old stand by recipe {from Dysart's Truck Stop in northern Maine} with noted exception; their recipe uses the whole 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree. Increase baking by 5 minutes.

These are a fall/winter tradition with my family. They are moist and delectable. I'll continue to use the whole can of pumpkin. What would I do with the other 3/4 cup anyways?
So here I am, I've broken two of my cardinal rules;
1. Only review recipes you've actually MADE.
2. Don't say "I changed this, that, and , oh that too... We loved it".
So, having made full disclosure, I submit my review :)

"Excellent muffins! Not overly sweet, just right. The pumpkin & apples go great together."

"The delightful topping is essential as these are quite mildly flavored. I baked them in cupcake pans with paper liners and all 24 were burned on the bottom. I can only assume the pans crowded the shelf and the smaller volume ba ked them faster. I think I'd like theapples grated not choppe"

"As with all muffins, just be sure you don't over-mix! They'll definitely be drier and tougher if you do. Once you figure the mixing out, they are FANTASTIC!"

"Superb...I had 24 muffins from this recipe which is wonderful. They are very moist and have a nice crumb. A little sweet so next time I think I'll cut the sugar by 1/2 and maybe add a little bit of honey or molasses. Also, they took less than 20 minutes in my oven so keep an eye on them while cooking. Definitely making again!"

"Really good fall recipe. I cut the sugar by 1/3, which I do routinely. Also, instead of crumb topping, I just put a pinch of coarse sugar on top of each. Batter seems really thick and dry, but apples moisten it during baking so don't be tempted to add more liquid. Delicious for breakfast."
