As the weather begins to get cooler and we spend more time indoors, it’s nice to have something baking in the oven to give the house a warm autumn feeling. These apple muffins fill the house with a wonderful aroma of Macintosh apples and cinnamon! I formulated this amazing fall recipe last fall at college because I missed home-cooked food…and my roommates LOVED them!

Preparation time: about 20 min. Baking time: 20-30 min. Makes 12+ muffins.

Directions

  1. Sprinkle chopped apples with sugar from sugar shaker, microwave for about 3 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Stir together milk, butter/oil, and eggs.
  3. In a separate bowl, use an electric hand mixer to mix together baking powder, sugar, and cinnamon. Add the wet ingredients and combine using a wire whisk or fork.
  4. Mix in flour just until there are no dry chunks.
  5. Lightly stir in the apple.
  6. Fill muffin pan about ¾ with the mixture. You could also use foil muffin liners on a baking pan if you don’t have a muffin pan!
  7. If you want, you can sprinkle some cinnamon or cinnamon sugar on the tops of the muffins; it adds a nice touch.
  8. Bake at 400° for about 20-30 minutes.
  9. Take out, let cool for about 5 minutes, and enjoy!

The muffins should come out moist, but not watery! Oven temperatures may vary, so be sure to check on them by inserting a toothpick in the center until it comes out clean. Enjoy!
