Basic Apple Muffins           Makes 12 muffins

This recipe, like most on my website, is a made-from-scratch recipe.  That



means it is made from simple, easily obtained ingredients.  I like simple, I like



easy, but most of all, I like ingredients that have names that are easy to




About the ingredients

•  Baking mix-There are several on the market or make your own



    with our our instructions here.

•  Apples-Honey Crisp or Gala apples are good to use but any apple with firm



   flesh will do.


•  Cinnamon-Use a really good quality and fresh, it does make a



   difference in flavor.  You can also substitute apple pie spice.


•  1 egg

•  2/3 cup whole milk

•  2 Tbsp melted butter, cooled

•  1/3 cup sugar

•  1 tsp of a good vanilla 

•  2 cups baking mix (our recipe here)


•  2 tsp of a good cinnamon or apple pie spice

•  1 medium apple, chopped (½-inch dice)



Preheat oven to 400°F.  You will need a 12-cup muffin pan,


only grease the bottom.


1.  In a medium mixing bowl, mix the first 4 ingredients until well    



     combined.  Stir in the rbaking mix and spice until moistened; fold in apple.

2.  Place equal amounts of batter into each cup of the muffin pan; bake until



     golden brown about16 minutes.  Cool; store in sealed container.




•  You can add ½ cup chopped nuts, ¼-inch dice to the batter.


•  Add a pinch of sparking sugar sprinkled on top of each muffin.

•  Amaretto or almond extract can be used instead of vanilla.

•  Raisins or chopped dates are great additions too!
