This Cinnamon Apple Muffin recipe is super easy to pull together.  It doesn't take long to bake them up.  They taste SO GOOD with juice, hot tea and coffee; not too sweet but just right. Full of soft, sweet apple bits and the cinnamon just makes them hard to stop eating.  Top half the batch with a little brown sugar and oats and they're a fun snack to kill off the late afternoon munchies.  Treat yourself to a batch.  Bake a batch for your workmates.  They will love you for it!

HERE'S ALL YOU NEED

  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 medium apple, cored, peeled, small dice
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Optional topping:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats

HEAT OVEN 400ºF.  Grease bottoms of 12 medium muffin cups or line with paper baking cups.

In a small bowl, beat milk, oil and egg. Stir in diced apple. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Make a well and pour in wet ingredients.  Stir slowly just until flour is moistened--batter will be lumpy. Do not over stir.

Use a 2-inch scooper to divide batter evenly into muffin cups.  Should fill cups 2/3 full.  Sprinkle with brown sugar-oat topping if you want.

BAKE 18 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.  Immediately remove from pan.
Makes 1 dozen muffins.
