Unfortunately I cannot take credit for these delicious muffins. This came from an old TOH magazine where someone had written in for this muffin recipe that they had tried at a restaurant called Curly Maple Resturaunt. These are perfectly moist and the kids gobble them up.

This is a mildly spicy muffin that all loved. I followed the recipe exactly and for me the recipe made more than 12 muffins. Next time I will use two muffin pans. Thanks for posting this lovely recipe with those healthy anti-aging spices. I'll be making it frequently.

Oh, YUM!! These are fantastic! I made mine with rhubarb sauce instead of applesauce (just rhubarb cooked down with a little bit of sugar) and they turned out terrific! I reduced the sugar to 1 1/4 cups, and think I'd even go to 1 cup next time, since there is sugar in my rhubarb sauce and the muffins were sweet enough. I also omitted the cloves, since I wasn't sure if this would taste as good with the rhubarb. The muffins were moist and tasty. And usually this isn't the case, but I think they were even *better* hours later! I think I'll try making them into a loaf next time. Thanks for a great recipe!
