Apple Pie Muffins

Apple Pie MuffinNeighbour Lady was super nice and power washed a part of our house. Lol. So I baked some muffins for her. Originally I wanted to make pie. But I'm always so unlucky when it comes to pie crusts. And I wanted to make an excuse to use my Winnie the Pooh muffin cup liners so I made Apple Pie Muffins lol

These are crazy moist. Neighbour Lady ate two right after I gave them to her the next day. I shared one with K (or rather h had the topping while I ate the rest of the muffin). Super yummy.


Apple Pie Muffins
(makes 14 muffins)

Ingredients:
  • 2 1/4 cups + 3 Tbsp all purpose flour, divided
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 cups apples, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups + 3 Tbsp packed brown sugar, divided
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp salted butter, melted & divided
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp white vinegar in enough milk to make 1 cup of "sour milk"
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

Apple Pie Muffins in the OvenDirections:
  1. To make the topping, combine 1 Tbsp of melted butter, 3 Tbsp of flour, 3 Tbsp of packed brown sugar and cinnamon until well blended in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. To make the "sour milk" mixture, add vinegar and pour in enough milk to reach the 1 cup line in a liquid measuring cup. Set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 375F. Line muffin tin with paper muffin cups.
  4. In a large bowl, stir together the baking soda, salt and rest of the flour. Set aside.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix together the egg, "sour milk" mixture, vanilla, rest of melted butter and brown sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Pour into the flour mixture and stir in the diced apples until everything is blended.
  6. Spoon into the prepared muffin tin, filling the cups to the top. Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with the topping.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the tops of the muffins spring back when lightly pressed.
  8. Let cool for 10 minutes before popping the muffins out of the tins. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
