Apples have been really cheap lately so I’ve been looking for apple recipes. I found a really easy apple muffin recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything. Muffin recipes are usually pretty easy to whip together, but this one was even easier than the average muffin recipe.
My muffins didn’t seem to turn out quite the same as The Girl Who Ate Everything. The sprinkled brown sugar doesn’t have the same effect as a streusel topping. Also my muffins didn’t really rise and so they looked almost the same uncooked as they did when they were finished and the batter remained a pale color.
The muffins tasted better than they looked. The batter is sweet and the apples compliment the batter.
Apple Muffins (adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1 Tablespoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups diced apples (around 2 apples)
Brown sugar for topping (I did this for this version, but next time I’d make a streusel topping)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream together sugar, eggs, vanilla and oil. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Add the diced apples.
3. Line muffin pan with paper liners. Fill muffin tins about 3/4 of the way full. Sprinkle with brown sugar.
