I found this recipe in a cookbook put out by the Maine Alzheimer's Association. My grandmother used to make muffins very similar to these and I was glad to find this.
- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3⁄4 cup sugar, divided
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
- 1⁄2 cup apple cider
- 1 cup cranberries, chopped
- 1 cup apple, peeled and chopped
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Grease muffin pan.
- Sift flour, baking powder, 1/4 cup sugar and salt into bowl.
- Whisk cooled butter togther with egg, buttermilk and cider.
- Add this mixture to dry ingredients, stirring only enough to mix.
- The batter should be fairly stiff.
- Gently fold in cranberries and apples into batter.
- Pour into muffin cups (about 2/3 full).
- Sprinkle and additional tsp of sugar over each muffin.
- Bake muffins for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean.
- Turn out onto rack to cool.
These little muffins are very, very good. They were moist, and the texture was very pleasing. I used Granny Smith apples and dried cranberries. A nice combination of fruit for a perfect tart/sweet muffin. This recipe is definately a keeper. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Very good and an easy muffin to make. Not too sweet. Thanks!
I was looking for a recipe to use up my cranberries so I made this. These are more like biscuits than muffins, but they are good. I got 15 muffins out of the recipe. I also used granny smith apples because that is what I had on hand.
