  • Reviews

  • “This is a very tasty filling cupcake.The topping makes it nice and sweet.I chopped my apple into small pieces and came out great.”

  • “I cannot say enough about this recipe!!!I substituted coconut milk for the milk, I also added 1/2 tsp. more cinnamon!Because my apples were losing their tartness I added lemon juice to the grated apple, about 4 tbsp. I doubled the recipe and also added one more Eggs as my eggs seemed small for large…For the crunch I made an apple crisp crumble, 3/4 c. Margarine, 3/4 c. Brown sugar 3/4c. Unbleached flour, 1tsp. Baking powder, 1/4 tsp. Saltsome finely grated pecans.Plenty of crumble for another double batch, the crumble keeps well in the fridge for a good month.”

  • “I really liked these. I made them as “cupcakes” much smaller and in the paper cups. I shredded a bit too much apple and just put it in anyway. They were very moist and great heated up just slightly.”

  • “I made these and served them to company. I made 12 instead of 4 so they were smaller.Next time I will double the recipe so they are larger.”

  • “Very easy to make because of using shredded apples rather than chopped but the predominant flavors are the cinnamon and nuts. The muffins are very moist and delicious just not very “apple-ly”. Definitely a great recipe if you need to whip up some muffins quickly. Using the muffin papers helps cleanup be quicker too. Thanks KC for sharing!”

  • “These muffins were easy to make and so delicious!!Even my picky eaters had seconds.The recipe says that it only makes 4 muffins…I used a standard size tin and got 12 muffins (I only baked them for 13 minutes, not 25).”
