Hi there everyone. Sorry for my scattered posts recently and Happy Almost Thanksgiving! I somehow managed to build a huge back log of recipes even with the scattered posting schedule, so a recipe a week is back at it (and maybe more than one recipe a week here and there.) This week – Apple cider muffins.
Fall is in full swing down here in Memphis and I still have some apples from my trip up to Michigan. How you may ask? Well because they were in a bag in the fridge and maaaybe I believed my boyfriend at them and apparently he did not. But they gave me the perfect idea for these lovely apple cider muffins.
Fall feels like muffin season to me so I was excited to have time to mess with this recipe. They totally delicious – they have the perfect crumb, a good hint of cinnamon, a bite of apple, and then of course the cider mixed throughout.
Plus, as with any muffin, they’re easy to make. You just whip everything up in one bowl and BOOM: Muffins. Delicious muffins. Muffins that totally rock.
I brought these to work (along with some of the other muffins I will be sharing over the next few weeks) and they were gone. There were a lot of muffins and we’re not a huge office.
So they’re good. I recommend you make them. Even I enjoyed one for breakfast.
