Cinnamon Apple Muffins

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

A nice muffin to enjoy with coffee. Even better with a touch of butter melting in the middle! If you don't have buttermilk, you can substitute by mixing 1 cup milk with 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice. Let sit for 5 minutes then stir. Recipe from Petak's New York City. (Carry-out Cuisine)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, sift the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon together. Mix in the chopped apple.
  2. In a small bowl, beat together the egg, buttermilk, and vanilla. Stir in the melted butter.
  3. Add these wet ingredients to the sifted mixture. Mix only until combined; if you overmix, the muffins will be tough.
  4. Fill greased muffin tins two-thirds full and bake the muffins 25 to 30 minutes in a 375 oven.

This muffin tasted excellent- it reminded me of an apple pie. It would be especially good warmed just a bit and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. I was worried when baking because the batter seemed too thick and clumpy. It did not pour into the muffin cups, instead I had a spoon a thick glop of it into the cups. But all concerns aside, they turned out well. I will make again.

very yummy! I subbed half of the flour for rolled oats to lower the GI & they worked so well! Thanks for a great recipe :-)
