Winter Apple Pie Muffins!


Tis the season! Seriously, these muffins are great for this time of year. They will warm you right up and you will definitely want seconds. They are a great breakfast snack with butter!

Makes 12 muffins

Ingredients

2 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups Packed Brown Sugar
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Egg
*1 cup Buttermilk
1/2 cup Butter, melted
1 tsp Vanilla
**2 1/4 cups Chopped and Peeled Apples

Topping

1/2 cup Packed Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Chopped Pecans or Almonds
1/3 cup All Purpose Unbleached Flour
2 tbsp Butter, melted

Method:

Topping
First step: in bowl, mix the first three ingredients together.
Second step: proceed by drizzling the melted butter over the mix and mixing with a fork. Set aside.

Batter
First step: grease or line muffin cups with paper liners. A little oil spread around with a paper towl works best.
Second step: combine the first four ingredients in a large bowl and whisk them together.
Third step: combine the next five ingredients in a seperate bowl and mix them together until combined.
Fourth step: Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients until no dry ingredients remain.

Spoon batter in muffin cups and sprinkle with topping.
Bake in center of 375F (190C) oven until tops are firm to touch, about 25 minutes.
Let cool in pan for 3 minutes and then transfer to metal rack.

* No buttermilk? I have a solution
Pour 1 tbsp of white vinegar into a measuring cup and add enough milk to make 1 cup.
Stir and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes.

** Use your preferred kind of apples. Use one kind or multiple kinds to get even more flavour out of this amazing muffin!
