Mia and I took our long walk in the park yesterday. On the way home we stopped by a favorite little produce stand, and checked out their selection of apples.
I must be in the mood for apples because on Tuesday night, I baked a batch of apple cinnamon muffins from my 2011 Taste of Home Fall Baking magazine. They were really good.
Cinnamon Apple Muffins
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
3 Tablespoon unsweetened applesauce
1 medium apple, peeled and grated
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon flour
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup oats
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl. In another bowl, stir together egg, milk, oil and applesauce. Stir into dry ingredients. Fold in apple. Fill muffin cups 1/2 full.
In a small bowl, combine topping ingredients with a pastry cutter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter. Bake muffins 18 minutes at 350.
Half of the muffins were eaten warm out of the oven and we ate a few more this morning. Luckily there were a few left over for me to have with my lunch yesterday. I liked them even better the next day. The flowers were from Ben - aren't they pretty. They make me smile every time I walk past them.
