We love ours with Peanut Butter!

With more apples to use from our Apple Orchard visit, I decided to make a huge batch of Apple Muffins to put in the freezer. I got the recipe from the Allen's Apple Orchard

Apple Muffins

1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter (softened)
1 Egg
2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Milk
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp Allspice
1 1/2 cups of peeled, chopped Apples

Peel the apples...I doubled the recipe and used 4 apples.

Cream the butter and the sugar. Add in the egg, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice and I got to use my fresh Nutmeg!

I used a mixer and alternated adding milk and flour. This batter is pretty thick!

Fold in the apples and scoop into muffin tins. I made 18 regular sized muffins and 20 mini muffins.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. The original recipe does call for a topping of 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon...put on before baking. I opted not to use the topping...easier to freeze!

Very nice flavor and great texture. We like them with a little peanut butter spread on top! A tasty breakfast :)
