Apple Muffins

These Apple Muffins are moist and flavorful with cinnamon and apples. It's super simple to make and a great way to use any leftover apples. These homemade apple muffins are moist, delicious, and packed with fresh apples. Here is my favorite apple muffins recipe for a sweet treat that is healthy and satisfying. The clear and straightforward batter yields moist, tender, and cakey muffins with tall muffin tops. They're always a crowd-pleaser! Enjoy the muffins plain or before baking; top them with the crumb topping and smooth vanilla icing. These Apple Muffins have an extremely long shelf life, making them ideal for grab-and-go snacks, lunch boxes, afternoon teas, or simply devouring on an as-needed basis.

They look and smell as good as they taste, with the sweet little dome, a sparkling sugar crust (if desired), tender apple pieces, and a hint of cinnamon fragrance. Enjoy!

Total preparing time: 30 minutes, Servings: 18 yields 

Ingredients: -

·   1½ cups sugar

·   2 large eggs

·   1 cup oil

·   1 tbsp. vanilla extract

·   3 cups flour

·   1 tsp. salt

·   1 tsp. baking soda

·   1 tsp. cinnamon

·   3 cups peeled, cored, diced apples

·   ½ cup brown sugar for topping

Instructions: -

·   Preheat the oven to 350°F. Arrange the 18-cup muffin pan with paper liners. Cream the sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla in a mixer. The color of the mixture should be pale yellow.

·   Add flour, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon to the other bowl. Mix the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture until everything is well combined.

·   The batter will be extremely thick, almost like cookie dough. Add the diced apples to the mix. When the apples are added, the dough will loosen up a little.

·   Fill paper liners almost to the top, about 3/4 full. Brown sugar the tops of each muffin generously. Bake for 20-24 minutes.
