This is one of my husband's favorite recipes. He warns me about the upcoming hunting season so that I can make these for his trip. They are very moist and tasty. I use Pampered Chef's cinnamon plus for the spices and like it the best. I have won Reserve Grand champ at our local fair with these and they are often requested. Freeze nicely.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Line muffin tins with cupcake papers.
- Put the grated apples, sugar, water, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves into a large saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Cool; add flour and soda.
- Fill paper lined cupcake tins 2/3 full.
- Bake until cupcakes spring back when touched in the center.
My daughter who is pretty fussy loved these...She has made sure that I have this in my cookbook so I can make them again. They are very moist. It also gives the house a nice smell when you are boiling the ingredients. Thank you I will keep this handy :)
Hi dayla. These were wonderful!!! Very easy to make and oh so flavorful. Everyone just raved about them. I made a hard copy of this recipe and have put it in my "keeper" notebook. Thanks so much for sharing this. :-)
These are excellent muffins! I made these as a gift to a girl who turned 7 today! She was soooooo happy with these muffins. It was little I could do to please the child, but she really loved them and I'm thankful to you for posting such a nice recipe. I was in a terrific hurry as I had to make a cake as well for her, and so, I did not keep the mixture of the first 7 ingredients to cool after boiling them. I added the hot mixture directly to the flour and baking soda. There was no problem absolutely. I did grease the muffin tins though as always. This will be a regular apple muffin now on, a zillion thanks to you for this recipe!
