Very good muffins. Moist and dense and sweet (but not too sweet). I halved the topping, and half seemed like enough. Used brown sugar for the topping. I wasn't sure what to do with the extra tablespoon of flour because the recipe never called for it, so left it out -- should that be in the topping too?
