Cinnamon Apple Muffin Recipe
Apple muffins are one favorite muffins. With Michigan apples out our back door, we have lots of apples we can grab fresh off the tree. The local mills and stores also carry a great selection of baking apples allowing me to make this apple muffin recipe a lot.
My family request, coaxes and pretty much encourages me to make apple muffins above all other muffins I make.
Be sure to use a cooking apples (soft apple) like the Granny Smith, Jonagold, Gala or Fuji. This allows the apple to soften while cooking. Cooking apples are great for pies as they cook quickly so you don’t have crunchy apples.
When making these muffins my son encourages more apples be put in. You can never have to many, according to him.
