I wanted something that looked fancy, yet was easy to assemble to take as a gift for some friends. This fit the bill perfectly. As they opened the container they were impressed by the looks and they tasted just as delicious. I did as another reviewer did and used 1 tbsp of batter on the bottom, 1 tsp of the sugar/nut mixture in the middle and another 1 tbsp on the top. I then sprinkled the remaining sugar/nut mixture over the top. I ended up with only 8 muffins though. I also used butter instead of shortening. Thanks for the recipe!
These muffins are really, really yummy! I made a minor adjustment to the batter mix. I added about 1/4 cup more sugar to flour sugar mix. I also added 1 teaspoon vanilla. I made for a reception for a special Sunday morning at church. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Tami B
By the recipe it is good, but a bit bland as others have pointed out. So I added 1tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp of almond extract. Then they turned out yummy. The batter does not make a lot though. I got 7 regular "coffee shop" sized muffins. To get the 12 they suggest, they would have to be pretty tiny muffins. It is 5 stars with the vanilla and almond added in and only 4 stars by itself. I will make these again though with the changes as they are yummy now!
These were pretty good. I forgot to add some vanilla into the batter, at the suggestions of others, and I think it needed it. I would use 3/4 c. of milk for next time instead of 1/2 c. just to make the batter a little easier to work with. I love the flavor and texture though so will probably make these again with the above changes. I got 9 muffins and baked for 18 minutes.
Yum! SO very easy too! I added a teaspoon of vanilla to the batter. I did have trouble figuring how how much batter to put in each tin though. I got 11 muffins and mmmm good! Made for I Recommend Tag Game
Very good muffins. I used butter instead of the shortening. Also used ground pecans. I measured 1 tbsp of batter then added 1 tsp of the nut mixture then 1 tbsp of batter then had enough nut mixture to add 1 tsp of nut mixture on the top. I got 9 muffins and they baked in 15 minutes. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
I love coffee cake, and I love these little muffins too! I omitted the nuts since the kids don't like them. I got 9 muffins out of the recipe as written, so will double it next time. At first I thought I made a mistake as the batter is very sticky but it rises up very nicely. I used the extra sugar mixture to sprinkle over the tops. Great little recipe Mandagirl, thx for sharing
I made these for Christmas morning and we loved them!
These were so good and pretty easy. The only problem that I had was that I didn't plan perfectly to have enough batter at the end to top the muffins off...some of mine ended up without the last bit of batter, but they were still delicious!
Yum! These are more like cakes than muffins. Using the quantities listed I ended up with 6. I used walnuts and subbed vegetable oil for the shortening, cooking the cakes for 22 mins. Thanks for a great recipe!
