Apple Cinnamon muffins

I love September. It’s the beginning of Fall and it’s all about apples. I love baking with apples this time of year.
I started working on several apple muffin recipes and have one worked out. I spent many trials on getting this one to come out just right (my kids love playing taste testers). Here it is:

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/3 cup apple sauce
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
3 apples peeled, cored,chopped ( I like mine in big chunks)
*I used 2 granny smith and one royal gala apples

The night before I made the muffins I put the apple chunks into a small bowl with the cinnamon and 1/4 cup of sugar.

Preheat oven to 400* and place muffin papers in a muffin tin.
~ mix all dry ingredients in a medium size bowl (minus the 1/4 cup sugar & cinnamon)
~ mix all wet ingredients in a small bowl
~ fold wet mixture into dry, the dough will be a little dry that’s okay
~ then mix in apples and all syrup in bowl, mix until mixture is moist ( might seem a little runny for muffins but that’s how it will look)
~ fill muffin liners 3/4 of the way full
~ bake in oven for about 20 mins or until toothpick comes out clean
~ when cooled down enough to handle place topping on them

Topping

1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter melted

~mix sugar and cinnamon in small bowl
~ dip top off muffin in melted butter and the dip in cinnamon sugar. Repeat with other muffins.

Enjoy!

It’s the muffins on the left, I am still working out the Apple Strudel Muffin recipe which are the muffins on the right.
