    The muffin was ok, but the crumb topping was dry and there was way too much of it for the 18 muffins I made, and I love crumb topping. I think if I make it again I'll leave out the oatmeal in the topping and that might help that part of the recipe.

    these were ok. I will make them again but without the cloves and more applesauce.

    excellent...and easy to throw together. Nice sneaky way to get some nutritional components into my kids...I just told them that these were cinnamon spice muffins....they gobbled them up and asked for seconds. This muffin is at its best if warm (or slightly reheated in microwave) although still tastey at room temp. Will definately make this again.

    absolutely wonderful! really muffins don't get much better than this, I use homemade applesauce that I keep in my freezer, for the the amount of sugar was just right, I love cinnamon so I increased to 1-1/2 teaspoons, the topping is fantastic, made for Think Pink event, thank you Kitty, I'll be making these many more times!

    I made these this morning for breakfast and they were very tasty! I accidentally left out the raisins and was kinda worried that the muffins would be dry and not very flavourful without them, but I neednt have worried. They were still very tasty with a wonderful cinnamon flavour and nice crunch from the topping. Next time though I will definitely put in more applesauce, cause I couldnt taste it as much as I would have liked to. Like momaphet I too did have half of the crumb topping as left over so just used it for making individual apple-rhubarb crumbles with some compote I happened to have on hand. I did cut back a lot on the butter (only used 1/3 cup in the batter and 1/4 cup in the crumb topping) and I might even use less next time. Also used only 1/4 cup of sugar, which was perfect for me. My only problem with this recipe was that I had some trouble blending in the butter with the other ingredients. I think it would have been better to melt it and then add it to the batter. But other than that a great recipe! Thanks so much for sharing this lovely recipe with us, kittycatmom! Made and reviewed for Porluck Tag Game March 2009.
