Now here’s a really easy to make muffin recipe that taste’s delicious and will fill your home with the wonderful aroma of apples and cinnamon while they’re baking.
These muffins are chock-full of apples and walnuts, and the cinnamon and nutmeg adds a wonderful, warm spiciness that will have your taste buds dancing with delight.
I really couldn’t believe how quickly these muffins were to prepare. The only thing that took any length of time, was peeling and chopping the apples…and that only took about 5 minutes.
I made one batch of these muffins (12), and within 30 minutes of removing them from the oven, half of them had already been devoured by my family. I think I’d better play it safe and make two batches next time.
Apple Cinnamon Walnut Muffins
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.
In a small bowl, beat milk, eggs and butter until well blended. Stir into flour mixture just until blended. Fold in apples and walnuts.
Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling three-fourths full.
Bake 25 – 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centers comes out clean.
