Cinnamon Apple Muffins – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Warm Cinnamon Apple Muffins right out of the oven are some of the most fall-like treats you can bake.  Apples that have been diced and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, then allowed to rest for a few hours, or up to overnight, become soft and tender fruit in each and every delicious bite.

Baking apples need to have enough firmness, while maintaining their sweet natural flavor.  I find myself drawn to Honeycrisp or Gala these days, but a Granny Smith always seem to do the trick too.  Either way, cut them small, so they soak up the juices from the sugar and spice.  As for the batter, a classic creamy buttermilk batter with pumpkin pie spice to heighten flavors.  I like to bake them straight in the pan, but you could use paper muffin liners for a festive fall look.

Eat them warm or at room temperature with a hot cup of coffee or tea.  Kids will love them in their lunches or for breakfast with a big glass of milk.  They refrigerate nicely in a sealed container to enjoy the next day too.
