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.
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter (softened)
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 :)
