    I enjoy making these muffins, they are pretty easy using tinned apple but still taste great, like I have slaved over them for hours.

    These were great! I didn't have any walnuts, but they still came out wonderful. I found that the recipe made about 28 muffins and that it took me a lot longer to cook them than I was expecting. I thought the oven ought to be a little hotter. They were wonderful right from the oven and then cold later. Yum!! I will definitely make them again and again.  -  02 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The best muffins I ever made. I did add 1 tsp. cinnamon to the batter and used Jumbo muffin pans. The baking time then inceases to 30 minutes.  -  05 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Didn't care for these at all which dis- appointed me because the recipe sounded great! I took some to friends and they felt the same way. The muffins were "ok" but nothing special. I didn't finish making them and threw away the remainer of the batter I had left.  -  05 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
