    Is there any way to make this into a cake? What adjustments would I have to make to the original recipe?

    These are pretty good! I added 2 tsp of cinnamon to the batter and coconut on top. I didn't have milk, so I used half a cup of hazelnut coffee creamer and half a cup of water.

    Wow, these muffins are delicious! They looked a little lonely sitting in the pan so I added a crumb topping made of butter and brown sugar before baking them. Yum, Yum! Made for PAC, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most :) Edited to say I've made these twice now and they are so good! They freeze well too.

    These were excellent. I did add a teaspoon of cinnamon, and I accidentally used half water and half milk, but they still turned out great. I think nuts would have been a nice addition. I might try pecans next time.

    Yummy muffins - what a treat. I didn't embellish them with a topping. They're nicely sweet, with great crunch going on around the edges, and not a terrible calorie-count. Thanks for a winner!

    I made these just like the recipe called for then added a crumb topping of brown sugar, oatmeal, butter and cinnamon, then topped with finely chopped pecans to bring them over the top, which it did!

    Some nuts would be good


I've been a fan of recipezaar for awhile now, but just recently became a member. I love to cook and try new recipes, and fortunately for me, my husband will try anything. I grew up and currently reside in Utah. It's a great place to live if you like outdoor activities like us. We love to camp in the summer and ski in the winter. If you haven't been here, you should visit soon.
