Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Moist, tender, tart, sweet, apple-y, cinnamon-y. That pretty much says it all.

Ingredients

MUFFINS:

3 cups all purpose flour

11/2 tsp baking powder

11/2 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp salt

11/4 cups sugar

2/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

2 tsp cinnamon

1 apple, chopped (I used Granny Smith)

1/2 cup apple cinnamon jammy bits

11/2 cups buttermilk

1 cup butter, melted and cooled)

3 eggs

STREUSEL:

1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1 cup pecans, finely ground

2 tsp cinnamon

1 Tbsp all purpose flour

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Spray muffin tins with Baker’s Joy.

Make streusel and set aside.

STREUSEL:

  1. Combine brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, and flour.
  2. If the texture seems too coarse, pulse briefly in food processor.
  3. Set aside.

MUFFINS:

  1. Place first 7 ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. Stir in apple and jammy bits.
  3. Combine buttermilk, butter, and eggs in a separate bowl and whisk to combine.
  4. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and, using a spatula, stir only to combine. (Do not overmix!)
  5. Use a large cookie scoop to portion batter into muffin tins. Top each muffin with 1 Tbsp streusel.
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes.

Notes

The muffins in the pan I sprayed with Baker’s Joy released much easier than the ones in the pan I sprayed with Pam.
