What a great recipe for Fall! Apple muffins! They will make your house smell wonderful! Apple muffins with cold milk. Apple muffins with coffee. Apple muffins with cider. Yum.
From the reviews:
“These is the yummiest muffins I’s ever had. Super simple too. I added cinnamon and nutmeg to the dry ingredients like many of you did – thanks for the tip. I didn’t measure how much apple I used by cups – I just used 2 normal sized apples, grated one and chopped the other. The grated apple just disappears into the batter. Next time I make these I will use one grated apple and two chopped apples (don’t chop too small.) I didn’t bother using baking apples, just used a red delicious and a gala ’cause that’s what I had . . . The batter really does come out looking like cookie dough, so don’t be afraid that you did something wrong, it’s supposed to be like that. By the way – a tip for getting the muffin out of the pan if you aren’t using paper cups, is to use a pineapple knife to get underneath it. Works great.”
“I shredded 1 cup of the apple to give more even distribution and add moisture throughout and chopped the 1/2 cup. I also did this first and added the sugar to the apples to help leach out the juice to make the batter not so thick. I added 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg to the batter, and 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar. Used the 1/2 cup butter but also added a couple of heaping tbsp. of applesauce. With that tweaking, just added 1 tsp. vanilla. These made 6 Texas size muffins and baked up like a picture and were very moist. The streusel topping is great and if you mix the flour and brown sugar well before adding the butter, you won’t get those clumps of brown sugar that cause ‘sinkers’.”
“Double the amount of apples ( do half shredded, half chopped), add 1 tsp of cinnamon to dough, do 1/2 white 1/2 brown sugar.”
These will disappear quickly, so you won’t have to worry about using them up in lunches or for snacks. lol If you really want to save them for something, they freeze well. They really are a nice little dessert to include in lunches.
