These muffins are chock full of apples, nuts and raisins, and is my all time favorite muffin recipe. I think it came from a Gourmet magazine about 12 years ago.
- 4 cups peeled granny smith apples, ¼ inch dice (1 ½ lbs)
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs, beaten lightly
- 1⁄2 cup canola oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- In a large bowl toss together the apples and the sugar.
- In a small bowl whisk together the eggs, the oil, and the vanilla.
- In a third bowl stir together well with a fork the flour, the baking soda, the cinnamon and salt.
- Stir the egg mixture into the apple mixture; add the flour andd stir the batter until just combined.
- Batter will be stiff.
- Stir in raisins and walnuts.
- Divide the batter between 16 greased muffin tins.
- Bake in a preheated 325 oven for 25-30 minutes.
- These are best eaten right from the oven, but you can enjoy them a day later too.
Made these last night. Very Fall like! Smelled good while cooking. My friend loved them. She asked me to make her a batch for Thanksgiving. I used two Granny Smith apples and two Fuji apples. Sprinkled some nutmeg and used half the amount of raisins. Used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Baked for only 20 minutes. Got 12 regular size muffins and 6 bite size ones. I also used Granny Smith apple sauce in place of the oil.
Wow! These are awesome! I was looking for an apple recipe, but was too lazy to grate the apples lol, so this was perfect. It was the strangest batter I've seen for muffins since it looked all apple, but they turned out great. Made tiny adjustments for personal preference: used gala apples, 1/2c raisons, 1/2c walnuts and increased the cinnamon. Look forward to making these again! :o)
I really enjoyed these muffins. I even replaced half the flour with whole wheat flour and they still turned out very moist and delicious. They were chocked full of fruit and nuts. Great recipe!
