Valerie411 1y agoAmazing!! The hint of maple is perfect! When making the frosting I accidentally added the whole stick of butter (whoops!!)...so I added extra cinnamon and vanilla extract to help cut the butter taste. It all tasted great!
Kla18252 1y agoMy new favorite muffin. I made them regular size and baked them for 20 minutes.
janglin28 2y agoI made these for a breakfast potluck. I was looking for something different. These are amazing and were a great hit. I made regular cupcake size and baked about 20 mins. I also used real maple syrup in place of extract just doubled the amount listed.
dark-molecule 2y agoGreat recipe, I don't leave many reviews but this one is awesome. Great for breakfast or dessert, I made large muffins they took a little longer to bake (16 - 20 mins) but still they were excellent!!

ees55 2y agoThe cake is delicious! I made regular sized cupcakes. They turned out moist and the perfect density. The frosting may be just a bit too cinnamony for my taste, but other than that they were good.
