I love the site foodgawker.com. Today I browsed the pictures and came across a recipe for Apple Muffins. I happen to have granny smith apples that were begging to be used before they shriveled up into something like a shrunken head in a museum display.. Okay, they were not that bad!! I made them and they were fantastic! I also think they would make great cookies! Just remember to reduce the cooking time. My brown sugar was looking more solid than usable today, and I used sugar in the raw to sprinkle the tops with. Turned out great! The cooking time in my oven was more toward the 25 minute mark. I will use the sugar in the raw every time I make these. A BIG Thank you to the site that posted them:
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup oil
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla
Sift: ( She didn’t sift and either did I and they turned out great )
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 cups peeled, cored, diced apples (around 3 apples)
- Brown sugar for topping (around 1/2 cup)
Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. The batter will be very thick. Add the diced apples.
Butter & flour muffin tins or use paper liners. Fill muffin tins to the top. Sprinkle with brown sugar (or Sugar in the Raw).
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Makes 18-24 muffins.
