Just a tip for those disappointed in the weak maple flavor: When baking with maple syrup, it is a good idea to use Grade B syrup, which is stronger flavored and intended for baking or cooking rather than as a table syrup. Read More

I didn't care for these. You can BARELY taste the maple syrup. Not worth the time. My fiance liked them though. I doubt I'll make these again. Read More

These muffins were great. I cut the recipe in half added a bit more syrup than called for and poured it into 12 mini muffin cups. I used Grade A Dark Amber syrup so it was just a subtle but very nice maple flavor. I also replaced the sugar with Splenda and used almost all wheat flour because i ran out of white. Wonderful recipe! Later note: I made this again in a regular muffin pan and with the whole recipe. I replaced the shortening with 1 tbs shortening 1 tbs butter and 2 tbs applesauce. I used a little over 2/3 cup of maple syrup and added a little less than 1/4 cup of toasted chopped walnuts. This time i used all white flour and it was soooo delcious i ate about 5 of them. The bit of toasted walnuts was REALLY delicious in it. I LOVE this recipe to death. Read More

Huge hit at our house! Light chewy and sweet without being cloying. DBF is a maple-aholic and this recipe was an instant success.:-) I used Grade B maple syrup as this is our preference and what was on-hand. Grade B isn't easy to find outside sugar houses so when it's gone I'll probably use whatever real Grade A is commercially available and add some maple flavoring. Read More
