Picture a Day #291 – Apple Muffins for a Blustery Day

When you are wrapped in your warmest fuzzies against the first cold storm of the season, it must be time for golden muffins fresh from the oven. What better way to celebrate apple season than with apple muffins? If you happen to have some home-made jam, even better! Here is my recipe for chasing away the chills:

Apple Muffins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil 12 muffin cups (standard size).

Combine 2 cups unbleached flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon.

Add 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, and 2 eggs. Blend.

Stir in 2 cups grated apple, 1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice (I used almonds this time), and 1/2 cup golden raisins.

Put the batter in the pans and bake for 25-30 minutes, until a fork inserted into the center of a muffin comes out dry, and the muffins are golden brown. Remove from pans and serve warm, or cool on wire rack and store in airtight container. Makes 12.

    These look great! I like the idea of using grated apple rather than chopped fruit! Definitely something to try. Thanks!
