Apple Muffin Recipe

Yum Print This Post Print This Post
It is a great year for apples in this part of Upper Michigan. The trees are just loaded. It is wonderful because there are so many different ways of preparing them. Last but not least -when you are tired of cooking them, you can slice, and freeze to make pies over the long winter. I decided to start the season with this Apple Muffin recipe. It is moist and delicious. Your family will love it!

  1. Looks great! How many muffins does it make?

  2. It makes about 16


  3. how long does it take to make and is it easy because i have to choose a recipe to make at school

  4. Their is not a lot of prep time if you have everything on hand. Maybe 15 minutes to put it together plus the baking time.

  5. These turned out great..but next time I make them I might tweak them a tiny bit.

    A little sweet…maybe reduce the sugar..and I had tons of left over topping, I guess I went fairly easy on them, but 2 cups total sugar seemed like a lot.

    Thanks for the recipe!
