Recipe Comments & Reviews

Very good muffins , we tried these muffins with fruit such like strawberries , bananans, peaches , and my mom switched the amount of nutmeg with cinnmon and 1/2 nutmeg also and they taste great !!!
These were great fresh out of the oven but by the next day they needed to be spread with butter and had with a drink because they were so dry. Not something I would give to young kids because the topping is rather messy.
love this recipe, used to make these muffins from your cookbook about 18 years ago. The cookbook is gone, gave it to my sister, but love that you have it online. My husband raves about these muffins.

I chopped walnuts real fine and added them to the topping, then I also placed some of the topping on the bottom of the muffin tins, so good and crunchy on the top and bottom.
These are the BEST muffins I've ever had. I liked them even better than the blueberry muffins I make. They had a great holiday smell baking in the oven and a delicious flavor. I added some cinnamon on top before baking which gave it some nice color. Took them to work and they were gone fast. I'm going to make them for Thanksgiving morning for sure.
This is a great recipe. I've been making it since 2001/2002 when I got it in a Land O Lakes recipe book. I DO omit nutmeg and use 1 t. cinnamon instead, I also add 1 t. pure vanilla extract and use 1 1/2 finely diced apples. They turn out beautifully. I've never used buttermilk or sour milk and they still turn out fine. They also turn out great when I've used margarine. They do need more sugar so after I've reserved 1/2 c. of the mixture, I add 1/4 c. granulated sugar to the rest of the mixture.

Edited to say that I made these muffins today in jumbo muffin pans. It made 8 and baked in exactly 19 minutes on 375 degrees.

What in the World Can You Dip in Chocolate?
January 6, 2016 by Land O'Lakes Test Kitchen

Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
