Cinnamon Sugar Apple Muffins #BrunchWeek
Sweet Cinnamon Sugar Apple Muffins, apple muffins topped with a cinnamon sugar glaze, are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a mid-day snack.
- 1 1/2 cups (180 g) all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup (100 g) granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup finely chopped sweet apples
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
- For the cinnamon sugar topping:
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease and flour a 12-cup muffin pan.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Blend the shortening, egg, milk, and apples in another bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until well blended.
Fill each muffin cup about 3/4 full. Bake for 25-30 or until lightly golden on top and a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Remove the muffins to a wire rack to cool.
Put the melted butter in a shallow bowl. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in another shallow bowl. Working one at a time, dip the muffin tops first in the butter, then in the cinnamon sugar. Once the muffins have all been dipped, repeat, butter first, then sugar. You should have enough mixture to dip each muffin twice. Store covered.
