Caramel Apple Muffins

61S8Q9YMTDL._SL500_AA300_Kendall has a little recipe book and lately has been pointing out a few things for me. She’d asked for Caramel Apple Muffins a few weeks ago and I made them, and since everyone liked them, I decided to grab them again.

The book is the New Junior Cookbook, and I’m not sure I can repeat the recipe here, but I’ll give you a few hints.

There’s a streusel mix of brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon, held together with butter. I put that together for a crumbly topping that will go on before they go in the oven.

Obviously you need an apple, and I chopped one up. Flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder get mixed together dry, as you can see here:

Then you make an ugly, disgusting mixture of an egg, milk, cooking oil and apple butter. It looks fairly gross, I have to say. Mixing it is not appetizing at all.

From there it’s simple, mix the dry and wet together, getting a batter. Add in the apple, and then you’re ready to drop things into muffin cups.

Add the streusel topping and drop in the oven for 20 minutes.

Things come out looking pretty good. I had some caramel topping for ice cream, and I drizzled a ltitle on top of the muffins. Last time I made them, they didn’t last the evening. We’ll see about tonight.
