    acerast's Note:

    These were a lunchroom favorite for the year I helped cook at a Lutheran School. No need to add spices - they are in the apple butter. Note: Some reviewers shared that these do not rise much and that they made only 18 muffins rather than 24.

      Fabulous! I was looking for a way to use up some of my crock pot apple butter, and I got a delicious muffin recipe that all 5 of my kiddos love! The were quite heavy - I was worried at first they might not be completely cooked in the middle - but they were simple moist and yummy!!

      *I did double the recipe and almost added TWO (15oz.) cans of evaporated milk (that's the normal size cans around here). Good thing I doubled checked - the recipe only calls for 5 ounces! I put in the 10oz for a double batch and the muffins turned out GREAT!

      I also added in two large apples, peeled & diced. You could also add in raisins, nuts....whatever strikes your fancy! Thank you for such a great recipe!

      Very tasty! I agree with other reviewers - they don't puff up at all, so don't overfill the cups or you'll have a mess. I added a couple of chopped apples (which I highly recommend) and still only wound up with 18 muffins. But the theyr'e very yummy:)

      Yummmm!!!! Loved these muffins!! I only made half the batch and they filled my 24 mini muffin pan fine. No they didn't turn out pretty but sometimes those are the ones that taste the best. I added pecans to some of the muffins for me and they were great! Thanks for sharing this recipe...I will be making these again!
