I must say one of my favorite muffins of all time has to be Apple Cinnamon Muffins. As a kid, I would love to wake up in the morning and seeing these muffins sitting out on the table. I love creating recipes that bring right back to my childhood and make me feel so much at peace.
I am so glad that my kids also love them just as much as I do. While my kids were growing up, I would love when they would help make these muffins, it was such a fun activity for us to do.
One of my favorite things to do is make a big batch of these muffins and then freeze them. I take them out the night before and then wake up and notice my boys have already eaten them all. But, honestly, I am okay that I didn’t get to enjoy any, I just love to see my boys happy faces and that they are as big of a fan of these muffins as I am.
This recipe for Apple Cinnamon Muffins is particularly very easy and quick to make. The ingredients that are needed for these muffins are ones most everyone already has on hand. Have I mentioned already that these Apple Cinnamon Muffins are so delicious, I think one of the best combinations out there when it comes to food is apples and cinnamon. Try out this recipe and let me know if you love it as much as I do.
Making Apple Strudel Muffins
I love making muffins from scratch with a few simple ingredients you can make a batch too! This recipe will make 6 Jumbo Muffins, 12 Regular muffins, or 20+ mini muffins. Which are your favorites? I love a Jumbo Muffin, but popping a mini muffin directly into my mouth never gets old either.
In a large bowl add the dry ingredients of Sugar, Salt, Baking Powder and All Purpose Flour. Go ahead a mix those ingredients together. Peel and core an apple. I like to use about 1 cup of diced apple for this recipe which ends up being 1 large apple or 2 smaller apples.
To peel and core the apple I choose to use my favorite ‘Apple Peeler Corer Slicer’. It will suction to the counter and makes this task very easy.
Once the apple is peeled and cored, it can be easily diced up. Then toss the diced apple pieces into the flour mixture and coat them in flour. This step helps to keep the apple from sinking to the bottom of the muffin. Also, if you choose to make mini muffins it’s best to dice in smaller pieces.
I like to then create a ‘well’ in the center where I will add the wet ingredients. Add Egg, Vanilla, Vegetable Oil and milk. Muffin batter can easily be mixed with a large spoon or even a fork. Mix this all together making sure all the flour is incorporated.
Spray muffin tins with cooking spray or use paper liners and fill each well ¾ full
For topping mix ingredients together in a small bowl combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and mix together. Then add melted butter and stir. Sprinkle on top of muffins before baking for a delicious sweet strudel topping.
The topping is of course optional but I do recommend adding it. It’s delicious!
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-22 for Jumbo Muffins, 9-12 minutes for Mini Muffins, or 15-18 minutes for regular size muffins.
Allow muffins to cool before serving.
|Muffin Tin Size||Baking Times|
|Mini Muffins||9-12 Minutes|
|Regular Muffins||15-18 Minutes|
|Jumbo Muffins||20-24 Minutes|
Muffins can be frozen and I highly recommend you do! Seal cooled muffins in a container or Zip-loc bag and freeze for up to 3 months. To thaw, place on counter and allow to thaw at room temperature for a couple hours.
