    Made'em this morning, but used 3/4 c sugar & 1/4 c brown sugar & 1/3 c walnuts. They're delish with coffee!

    Made these muffins for breakfast this morning. They are nothing special. Sweet and soft, but not enough apple or cinnamon flavor. I will not be making these again.

    Here are the modifications I made: Sub 1/2C Whole Wheat Flour (so 1 1/2C white, 1/2C wheat) 3/4C Sugar (I would even half it next time) 1 3/4 apples diced and another 1/2 granny smith sliced No buttermilk, so I used half 1/2 & 1/2 and half skim milk Used 6T butter and 2T applesauce instead of 1/2C butter Increased cinnamon, sprinkled nutmeg into mix They turned out great. I made mini muffins, which took about 12 mins to make and are perfect for the Thanksgiving bread basket. Yum yum!

    I absolutely agree that this needed the three medium apples. (I cut up three large and it looked like too much before I added it to the batter. I would say i used 2 1/4 large apples. I also left the skin on. AND I added 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon ). I sprinkled brown sugar on top before baking. I like BIG muffins so i filled mine past the rim and baked an extra three minutes. These were delicious!

    I quartered caramel cubes and pressed 1 each into the top before baking. It provided a wonderful caramel gooey center and pushed these muffins over the top. Great recipe

    YUM! Very autumnal and great straight out of the oven! The apple garnish is so cute. I, however, used two apples and chunked them. I can't wait to make these again!

    I just made this recipe tonight and they turned out great! I used about 2 - 2 1/2 golden apples and also added a 1/2 cup of oatmeal. Be sure to make the apple slices on top pretty thin and they bake pretty and golden.

    I used three apples but grated them, which worked out great! Next time I will do that again but still add a fourth apple chopped for the chunks and increase the cinnamon.
