eggs, lightly beaten
Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored and chopped
I used 2 medium red delicious apples(all I had on hand) Took the apples unpeeled and half a lemon rind and threw it into my food processor. Very easy to whip up. I like the skin left on the apples for bits of color(and added fiber) I used half cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup a-p flour. I only had buttermilk so used that in lieu of regular milk. Added 1/2 tsp. nutmeg to the batter and this complimented the other flavors nicely. These are not very sweet so sugar/cinnamon mixture on top was a plus. I also added tsp. vanilla. These were super moist with a fluffy light texture even with using the w.wheat flour. They almost had a 'tutti-frutti' flavor. Very nice muffin.
These muffins were very tender and light, but the three stars reflects the fact that they have no lemon flavor at all. Basically a plain apple muffin with very little flavor, period. They would have been really good had the lemon flavor been prominent.
I used 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of the butter and it was an awesome muffin! Will definately make again!
These are really nice, moist, and flavorful muffins. I am generally not one to hack these recipes to death when I try them, but I did make a few changes this time (some out of necessity and some out of preference). I didn't have any lemons on hand, so instead of using the zest and juice of a lemon, I added a tsp of Penzey's lemon extract, which is nice and strong and imparted a nice natural-tasting lemon flavor. I diced the apples very, very finely because if my 2-year old finds chunks of anything in her muffins, she spits them out. (I would love to know if anyone has made this with grated apples, by the way!) 10 T of butter seemed like a lot to me, so I used 6 T of butter and 4 T. of natural style applesauce; this was just enough butter to keep the muffins rich and moist. I added about a half tsp of cinnamon to the batter and skipped the cinnamon/sugar on top. These are moist, flavorful, not-too-dense and not-too-light, and I agree with another reviewer in saying kind of tutti-fruitti in flavor. I will definitely make these again. Thanks for a great muffin recipe!
These muffins are wonderful. I added more apple, as my family loves them. They are tender and wonderful hot, right out of the oven. I will definately make these again.
These are pretty good. A little too cake like but the flavor is really nice.
The cinnamon topping is what makes these and the lemon makes them just a little bit different from other apple muffins I've tried. Ideal for breakfast as they weren't too sweet. Thankyou Roby we enjoyed these.
These muffins were yummy! The only thing that kept it from having that 5th star was that I was expecting more lemon flavor. I'll probably add more than the recipe calls for next time to meet my taste expectations. All in all this recipe is a keeper. I like to make things according to the original recipe first and then tweak. :-)
