Homemade Apple Cinnamon Muffins

apple-muffins4-111809I want you to picture this – it is early November morning in Ontario – the sun just came out and it looks beautiful outside. Cold – yes, but fresh and when I look in my backyard, our maple tree still has some beautiful gold leaves. Gorgeous scene against the birght blue sky!

Considering all this, I am thinking that something is missing…. Going outside to enjoy the morning is not really an option – I am not all that fond of cold weather, even if it does look very nice out there!

And then I though – how about making a treat for myself? And what could be better than adding the aroma of apples and cinnamon to the picture prefect morning? I know others will enjoy fresh muffins as well – but for now – I am doing it for myself!

Honestly – try it one day! When you are just by yourself, make yourself something that will make you happy and relaxed ! For me – on this beautiful morning it was adding the aroma (and of course the taste) of freshly baked apple cinnamon muffins!

Here is the recipe – and I took a few picture for you!

Homemade Apple Cinnamon Muffins:

1/2 cup of butter or margarine – softened

3/4 cup of sugar

1 egg, beaten

1 cup of sour cream

1 teaspoon of salt

1-1/2 cups of diced apples

1 cup of all purpose flour

3/4 cup of whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 cup of raisins

  • Cinnamon and vanilla sugar for topping
  • Blend margarine, sugar and egg until smooth.
  • Add sour cream, salt, apples and mix well.
  • Stir together flour, soda, cinnamon and add to the wet ingredient mixture.
  • Mix only to moisten
  • Spoon into muffin pan lined with baking cups and sprinkle with cinnamon and vanilla sugar.
  • Bake at 375F for 20 minutes or until tops are golden.

And here is how it went:
