Recipe: Quick and Easy Apple Muffins

Again, with the plethora of apples I picked last weekend, I decided to try to make apple muffins. I chose this recipe from because it doesn't call for streusel, which to me is kind of a pain to make. This recipe only makes a dozen, but I suppose it would be pretty easy to double the batch.

Ingredients (divided by wet and dry)

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup apple - peeled, cored, and chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl, stir together milk, egg and butter. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until combined. Fold in chopped apples. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

I did not have milk on hand, so I just used water. Also, the recipe doesn't call for icing, but I thought they looked a little naked (and potentially dry), so I slathered on some vanilla icing. Yum!
