This is a quick and easy recipe which you can adopt too. You can use different kind of fruits, i love to use seasonal things so i would use berries in fall, bananas in winter, strawberries in spring and mango in summer. You can also use chocolate chips, raisins, nuts or a combination of those to make the batter according to your personal preferences and taste.

Loved the muffin mixture, so moist and delicious!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe, using a mini loaf pan, and used bananas as the fruit and added some mini chocolate chips. I am not sure if it is a mistake or the actual recipe to only add 1 teaspoon of icing (powdered) sugar for the topping? I added about 3 tablespoons to the half recipe of topping and it was still very tangy and took away from the muffin mixture, so next time I would add a lot more or just leave it off and just enjoy the wonderful muffin/loaf!! I am rating this based on the muffin batter. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for "Best of 2010" Tag Game.

I followed another reviewer and used banana (one, diced) and chocolate chips (1/4 cup) and these really made the muffins. Otherwise they were pretty dense (I make a lot of muffins and the crumb just wasn't as light and fluffy as it should be). I agree with the other reviewers - the powdered sugar amount is off, I added 2 tablespoons. We liked them equally well with and without the cream cheese frosting (or decorative nuts). I only got 10 pretty small muffins out of this recipe, and the frosting was enough to lightly cover about 6 of them.

This recipe is a delight! The brown sugar gives a nice flavor and the texture is amazing - so moist and fluffy and light. I used strawberries as my fruit and added a bit more sugar to the icing mixture. I made these in mini-loaf pans so cooked an extra 5 minutes. Thanks for posting this recipe!
