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

 

 

pronounce.  

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.

Ingredients

•  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.

Instructions

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.

     

Options

  

•  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!
