    I made these muffins many times. It become a staple in my recipe box. Thumbs up.  -  11 Oct 2011


    Superb! Following other reviewers' suggestions, I added 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, and 3/4 tsp. cinnamon to the muffin batter. I also used canola oil in place of the melted butter and 1/2 c. white sugar and 1/4 c. brown. In the crumb topping I increased the cinnamon to 1/4 tsp. These are very good and will go in my 'keepers' file!  -  27 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
