Sometimes you’re just in need of a simple recipe with ingredients that you already have in your cupboard. This apple muffins recipe is like that. It’s easy to make and you probably have all the ingredients at home already. Perfect if you just decided you want to bake something and you don’t want to leave the house.
On this page I’m sharing the recipe for apple muffins. It’s a basic recipe, nothing special. But there are few things as good as a lukewarm home baked apple muffin! I always love apple pie, but it’s so much work to bake one. These apple muffins are a great replacement. You still have the warm apple and dough combination but they’re much easier to make! Preparing these apple muffins will only take a few minutes and the oven does the rest of the work.
This apple muffin recipe falls in my ‘Sugar Sunday’ category as, unlike most of my recipes, this one does include sugar. Want to get some baking done with apples but without sugar? Check out my apple flower pie recipe.
