These are easy to make, Nice apple flavor. Great with a big glass of cold milk, or a cup of hot coffee or tea. You can cut the recipe in half if you want.

Ingredients

1 c
butter
3/4 c
sugar
2 medium
eggs, beaten
5 c
sifted cake flour
1 tsp
salt
8 tsp
baking powder
2 c
milk
2 1/2 c
peeled and diced apples
2 tsp
vanilla
1/2 tsp
apple extract (optional)
1 c
chopped walnuts (optional)

Step-By-Step

1Cream butter and the sugar until light and fluffy, add the beaten eggs and beat until well combined. add the vanilla and apple extract to the milk
2add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture alternating with milk. beat until well combined, fold in the chopped apples and walnuts.
3Fill greased or cup cake paper lined muffin cups, about 2/3 full. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon ( I use about 2 teaspoons on each)
4Bake in pre heated 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
5After Muffins have cooled completely I drizzle mine with powder sugar that I have mixed with a little cream and apple extract just thin enough to drizzle but it firms up after sitting for a few minutes
