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

It is very easy to make. I think it is a little salty and I cannot really taste the Maple syrup. I will cut the salt by 1/4 teaspoon and add 1/4 cup more of Maple syrup in my next attempt. Read More

I didn't use real maple syrup because artifically flavored-maple syrup has a much stronger maple flavor. I omitted the walnuts and added a crunchy topping (3 tbs. flour 3 tbs. sugar 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 2 tbs. chopped pecans) sprinkled over the muffin batter. I added 1/4 cup of sour cream for extra moistness. SO GOOD!!!! Read More

These are fantastic muffins. I share the recipe with anyone that tastes them. My husband had a favorite maple walnut muffin we bought at a local store. they were discontinued. These were an instant hit better than before and to enhance the good nutrition I add raisins. Thaks Allrecipes Read More

Although I read the other reviews I decided to try it without many changes. However I did add more syrup and less salt. I felt it was bland but my husband and son loved it. Go figure. However next time I might make some minor changes as suggested in the prior reviews. Read More

These weren't the best muffins but certainly weren't the worst either. They seemed a bit bland. Next time I will add something like nutmeg or allspice to give it a bit of zip. As previous reviews have stated the maple flavor is barely noticeable (even when adding an extra 1/4 cup of real maple syrup) I will follow the suggestion of using the more strongly flavored artifical maple syrup next time.
