Just as a note for everyone, the tablespoon of baking powder in the recipe was not an error. When you happen upon a recipe and you think something is in error, it is better to click where it says "Find an error? Send us questions or corrections" because the Zaar forwards an email to the chef asking them about it. I hadn't gotten a mail, or I could have answered this easily. I'm sorry that Ellie2 ended up using the wrong amount and had the muffins turn out bad because of it. I hope next time, there will be a better ending.
These old fashioned muffins were just what I have been looking for. The apples gave the muffins a tartness, but not overpowering. I used Granny Smiths'. I loved the density of these muffins too. Warm from the oven, they made a great breakfast treat, and healthy too. Thanks for sharing, Sue.
These are quick and easy to prepare. They have kind of a unique flavor since the quantities of cinnamon and nutmeg are reversed from the norm. Thank you for sharing Sue!!! I just ate three of them for lunch. :-))
