Review by Joyce on September 9th, 2011:

Missing something - probably Baking Soda... Muffins are heavy like pound cake, not at all light and fluffy like a muffin should be.

Review by Colleen on September 12th, 2011:

Mine turned out moist and fluffy, very flavorful. I even used 1/3 whole wheat flour.

Review by Brenda on December 19th, 2011:

Mine turned out like more like Joyce's. Something is off in the flavor as well as the fluffiness.

Made them today did up a double batch! I put in milk chocolate chips and didn't put in the last 3 spices and turned out absolutely great. I also switched one cup of milk for one cup of Cranberry Juice!

Fantastic!! Extremely moist and flavorful. More like a loaf consistency. Topped with cream cheese icing! Kids loved them.

Love these! I also used 1/3 whole wheat flour-- only because I ran out of white-- and they still tasted delicious! I did not have allspice or pumpkin pie spice but I had ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and it was great!

Do you know what the carb count these would be? My daughter is type 1 diabetic and we have to count carbs.

Review by Ginny on July 10th, 2014:

I was disappointed with the texture. The muffins were heavy and dense.
