Sweet apple muffins with a cinnamon-sugar topping!

Apple Sugar Muffins

Well, hello. I made you some muffins today!

Muffins are a standard staple in our house. We love them. All kinds and sizes. They seem to be one of the few foods that our family can agree on. So, imagine my excitement when I found a new one..especially one this simple.

Yes, excitement over a muffin. My life is super duper thrilling.

This is another recipe that my lovely husband found. He is a bit obsessed with anything apple. Pie. Muffins. Sauce. Cake. Cold from the fridge. You name it, slap some apple in it. He may just eat it.

This recipe comes from a circa 1950’s Mennonite Community Cookbook that I found at the library. It is a really fascinating and nostalgic cookbook.If you can, give it a has some great, very simple, recipes in it.

Some are a bit..mmmm..different or aren’t the healthiest, but, several of them sound pretty tasty.

These are seriously delicious Apple Sugar Muffins. Just the smell of my kitchen when they were baking was amazing! They are perfect to make a batch, throw in the freezer (my favorite thing) and just warm them up for breakfast or a snack.

Share my excitement, won’t you? 🙂

I love the additions! Great idea! Also love the no-peel of the apples too..makes it a bit easier :)

Thanks for sharing! We love cinnamon & vanilla so I added some to the batter. Didn't bother peeling the apples but didn't notice in the finished muffin where that would make a difference to taste or texture. Crushed Corn Chex work well (all we had) but didn't have enough to make the full cup required so added a few quick oats, which worked. The house did smell amazing & the muffins were a hit! :)
