Apple Cinnamon Muffins | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Seriously, I really do need to just start having a “Muffin Day”, because I think I’ve posted a muffin every week for at least the last month. I tell ya – there is muffin love at our house! Actually, I had a family reunion a week ago, and my family was in charge of breakfast. My mom made some delicious quiches, and all us kids pitched in and brought muffins and sweet breads. This is one of the muffin contributions I made. (There are 2 more, so there is at least 2 more weeks of muffins!)

For some reason, I got it in my head that I wanted to make apple cinnamon muffins. Simple, right? Well, I had a recipe that has been saved on my delicious forever, so I printed it out, intent on making it. Then I took a look at it. All was good, except the measurements were metric. Normally, I’d just get online and convert everything, but since I was making these for a crowd, I didn’t want to take any chances with measurements going wrong. So I went online. And I was so surprised at the lack of apple cinnamon muffins! I thought there would be thousands and thousands of them. But that wasn’t the case. And I couldn’t find just what I was looking for. Good thing they are just muffins, because I was able to take a recipe, and with a few tweaks, I ended up with exactly what I was looking for!

    That's one delicious looking muffin! I've never had an apple cinnamon muffin and it will be a great one to try. Thanks for the recipe!

    These muffins look delicious! I'm making note of them. I had the same problem with finding a muffin recipe for almond poppy seed muffins. I thought there would be many out there but that wasn't the case. I thought it was actually quite strange.

  8. Jennifurla says:

    these look perfect if you ask me!

  9. Holly says:

    The best kind of muffins-apple cinnamon:)

  10. Joanne says:

    No apple cinnamon! That's crazy talk. And you are more than welcome to post muffin recipes for as long as you like. And I will be more than happy to salivate over them.

  11. Cassie says:

    We love muffins at our place too. Andrew is a muffin nut! I'm definitely putting these on my (very long) list of muffins to try!

  12. Miss Meat and Potatoes says:

    Yes you should start a muffin day or maybe even a separate blog! Cupcakes have had their moment in the sun for far too long!!

  13. Barbara says:

    Sometimes the metric conversions online are not accurate. Have you noticed that? I double checked everything the last time.

    Love that you are posting muffins, Deborah, because they are a favorite in my house too. Keep them coming!

  14. Vivienne says:

    Mmm I love apple cinnamon baked goods. I spend way too long looking for specific muffin recipes sometimes – like I was looking for a muffin recipe that used dried apricot last week. All the ones that were coming up didn't sound good (but maybe that's partly because I don't like dried apricot haha) and so finally I just found a muffin recipe and subbed raisins for apricots.

  20. Mollie says:

    I'm baking these now! I substituted 1 cup of AP flour for 1 cup of 100%whole wheat. The batter seemed too oily when it was all together and I was dipping scoops into the muffin cups. We'll see, but it next time I'll decrease the oil. I also decreased the sugar because I thought the apple would give some natural sweetness. (Now that I'm thinking about it, since I decreased the sugar, I should've decreased the oil maybe?) Overall, they smell *awesome*, I love apples and cinnamon together so I'm sure they'll taste great, and the recipe made 12 big muffins that puffed up nicely.
