These were fun to mix up, since it's so quick. My first batch turned out too small for my liking, so the next batch I filled almost to the top. These muffins do not get crusty but are softer and cakelike. I like the topping the next day because it hardens the top a bit. The flavor is very good and the topping is key! Note: we've been enjoying these the last three days now!

My family and I loved these muffins. Very moist and tasted like our favorite carrot cake. The cinnamon sugar topping was a great idea and dried to a slightly crusty texture. Thanks Melanie.
