These were really tasty with a lovely soft texture. They were quick and easy to prepare and tasted very nice. However, I agree with the previous reviewers, that they need the addition of either a chopped apple or some raisins (I actually added 50 g of raisins to the dough but it wasnt enough). With that addition they would definitely be a five stars! Thanks for sharing, swirlycinnacakes!
This was a very good muffin. I used a whole egg instead of just the white and used white sugar instead of brown because that's what i had on hand. I added 2 cut up apples and a handful of raisins as suggested by previous reviewers. im rating this a 4 as i'd like to leave room for improvement in case the "alleged" topping ingredients get added to the recipe at a later date.
I read through the recipe many times & can't see any extra ingredients to make the topping, so we just went without it. These muffins are good for breakfast on the run, but would definitely be better with apple chunks and/or some currants for a little extra goodness & sweetness. Serving size is perfect.
