Apple cinnamon muffins

I had bookmarked this recipe from Baking bites long back but didnt get to it.Whenever I think of trying this recipe either I will be short of apples or the apples will not be fresh.Since Iam travelling to India on a three weeks vacation Iam planning my menu everyday such that no vegetables or fruits are left out in the refrigerator.Veggies I can manage, but fruits ! with only three days left there is a lot of fruit (peaches,cherries, pears, apples)to be finished thanks to the visit to the farmers market..So dont be surprised if there is an other post on something with peaches.(ya I have a bookmarked recipe of peaches too..)

I didnt use the recipe as such, made a few changes like avoided eggs and used milk instead of buttermilk.I also used whole wheat pastry flour.The result was soft moist and delicious muffins.

Recipe adapted from Baking Bites

2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract ( I used vanilla sugar)
1 cup milk
2 cups diced apple
3 tbsp coarse sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnomon

Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and spices.
In a large bowl, whisk together brown sugar , melted butter, vegetable oil and vanilla.
Working in two or three additions, alternately stir in flour mixture and milk, ending with an addition of flour and mixing only until no streaks of flour remain visible in the batter.
Stir in diced apple.Divide batter evenly into prepared muffin cups filling each to the top, or slightly over.
In a small bowl, stir together coarse sugar and additional 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon.
Sprinkle generously over muffins.Bake for 15-18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean and the top springs back when lightly pressed.

Cool muffins on a wire rack.
Mine made 9 large Muffins.

I stumbled across your blog trying to find an apple cinnamon recipe. Your muffins look yummy :) I have a question though. Would replacing some of the brown sugar with white effect the recipe? Thank you!

Sumi said...

In reply to the above comment - You can very well replace brown sugar with white granulated sugar..
It doents make any difference in Texture or taste.But the colour of the muffin will be slightly different from the pictures here.

Hi Sumi, Just made your delicious apple cinnamon muffins! They came moist. The next time I'll add walnuts, too.
I added 1 egg...was I supposed to? Most muffins recipes call for one, so I added it.
Thanks for a great recipe!
