Mmmm... Apple Pie Muffins

I wanted to try something other than banana muffins so last night I made Apple Pie Muffins.  They turned out really well so I thought I would share them with you....well you'll have to make them yourself.  I'm not going to do all the work :)

Apple Pie Muffins 

You will need :
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups diced apples
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin tin or line with paper muffin cups.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together 2 1/4 cups flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate smaller bowl, mix together the egg, buttermilk, 1/2 cup melted butter, vanilla and 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar until sugar has dissolved. Pour into the flour mixture and sprinkle the diced apple into the bowl as well.

Stir just until everything is blended. Spoon into the prepared muffin tin, filling the cups to the top.
In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour and cinnamon. Drizzle in 2 tablespoons of melted butter while tossing with a fork until well blended. Sprinkle this over the tops of the muffins.

Looks like I need to get new muffin tins

Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the tops of the muffins spring back when lightly pressed.

I really enjoyed these muffins and I hope you will too.

Tip:  If you do not have buttermilk you can use 1 tablespoon vinegar and enough milk to make 1 cup.  Mix together and let sit 5 to 10 mins.
