These muffins were really nice! They had a great flavour, very cinnamony and full of fruit. Also they were easy to make and your baking time was spot on. I doubled the recipe for a party I was bringing the muffins to and made a few changes due to personal preference: Used only half the oil called for and only quarter the sugar. Made up for the missing liquid with milk, which worked out nicely. My only complaint about this yummy recipe would be that the vanilla unfortunately didnt quite come through as much as I had hoped it would and it only yielded 20 muffins doubled. Other than that I really enjoyed these tasty treats as did all the party guests. :) THANKS SO MUCH for sharing with us, ellie_! Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #19 February 2010.
