    Loved it!!! Added 1 tsp vanilla. That's all I changed. For us Americans 190 Celsius = 375 Fahrenheit 90g = 4 and a Half Tablespoonn 20g= 1 And A Half Tablespoon  -  08 Mar 2018


    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)
