This recipie was very good, however, the indicated baking time of between 10-15 minutes is totally unrealistic. Try 20-25 minutes. I have made these muffins twice, and the second time I added the grated rind of a lemon and topped them with cinnamon and sugar. Read More

I made these muffins earlier today and I found them to be a little on the dry tasting side. I used paper baking cups and the bottoms were very oily after they were baked. Next time I'm going to substitute either applesauce or mashed banana for 1/2 of the oil. I ended up with 19 muffins. Read More

Ok you guys I got it. I tried this recipe on a whim this morning as I went strawberry picking yesterday and the muffins are FANTASTIC!!! Follow the recipe as is (I used a little less sugar as my strawberries are very sweet and ripe) use a smidgen more cinnamon and only use 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. As suggested my a previous reviewer use 1 egg 1/4 cup oil and 1 cup milk. Also mix in 1 and 1/4 cup chopped strawberries and 1 cup finely chopped (use food processor) pecans. Use muffin tin liners and fill to top quickly mix up heaping tbs. of flour heaping tbs brown sugar and 1 tbs butter mix until crumbly and sprinkle on top. This crumble is magic it wont stay on top but sinks in a bit for a delicious little extra oomph! BAKE FOR 20 MIN. And voila! Moist cakey strawberry-y muffins! Read More

I was really disappointed in this recipe. They were very oily and I agree with the other reviews that the baking time needed to be increased by quite a bit. I made another batch of muffins after using this recipe but I cut the oil to 1/4 cup and added only 1 egg and 1 cup of milk. This next batch came out much better. I will not make the original recipe again. Sorry. Read More

I had exactly a cup of berries left over from a dessert so I thought I'd try this recipe. I halved the amount of oil and replaced it with mango-applesauce. I was wary of the baking time indicated it seemed too short. It took 20 minutes for the muffins to be ready. The recipe made 16 muffins. I thought they were "okay" however my son loved them and ate three in a row. I might make them again but I would add more of the cinnamon and nutmeg and add a cinnamon-sugar topping. Read More

I followed some of the other reviews and added mashed bananas instead of a whole cup of oil. I thought the time was approximate I cooked the muffins for 20 minutes and got 18 large muffins. My family was unsure how they felt about the taste. They said they were good but not something they want added to the regular menu. I thought they were very good and would give them a 5 star review but the average in my family was a 3 star. Read More

Very nice basic muffin with an overly nutmeggy taste (will need to decrease that next time). Substituted 1 cup applesauce for the oil and they came out very moist. Took about 18 minutes to bake. Will see what the others think tomorrow! Read More
