Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
I am a newbie when it comes to baking and muffin making. In fact, this is the second muffin recipe that I tried (and I followed 90% of the recipe) and it was a success! I was a bit worry at first after reading the various reviews that document spilling disaster in the oven due to filling the muffin cups fully. But... I had no spilling problem at all despite the fact that I DID fill the batter into the tins exactly to the top of the muffin cup (I used regular muffin tins & I made 12 muffins with the recipe). I also used paper cup liners. In fact, upon being baked, it makes the muffin nice & cute with their 'swollen' tops. I agreed that the topping mixture was too much, so I did a lot of cutback; in fact, I omitted the butter altogether (maybe this is the culprit of the spilling disasters that many people had). The only drawback that I found in this muffin recipe is : still TOO SWEET, despite the fact that I reduced the white sugar. So here are the only modification that I did: Muffin batter: White sugar reduced: 3/4 cup to 1/2 cup ---> still too sweet Milk increased: 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup --> to make the batter less dry Granny Smith apples: 2 apples to 1 1/4 apples Also added 2 tsp of vanilla and 1/8 tsp of turmeric to give color. Everything else remained the same. Toppings: White flour reduced: 1/3 cup to 1 tbsp White sugar: omitted and replaced with 1 tbsp + 1 tsp chopped block brown sugar Butter: omitted Added chopped walnut: 1 tbsp Ground cinnamon: remained the same.
