One thing that I love about fall is Apples! I love apple cider and taking the kids to pick apples so we can make delicious treats at home. Recently my mother in law gave me a big batch of apples from their apple trees so I decided to make some yummy Apple Pie Muffins to have for a quick and easy breakfast on the run. These muffins are very easy to make and the recipe yields 1 dozen muffins.
What You Need:
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
2 large apple, peeled and chopped
What You Do:
Preheat oven to 350*. Grease your cupcake liners
Mix brown sugar and apple pie spice together in a bowl and set aside. In a mixer or large bowl, combine the sugar and softened butter until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla and continue mixing until combined. Add the flour, baking powder and milk.
Fill your cupcake liners about 1/4 full. Then add some of the apples and brown sugar mixture. Top with remaining batter, apples and brown sugar mixture.
Bake for 30-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffins comes out clean.
