apple muffins

A couple of weeks ago my mother-in-law brought us three big bags of apples from Åsly. Since then our kitchen has been like an apple muffins bakery. I have served these muffins to lots of people and everyone loves them. Here is the recipe.

Start with marinating the apples. I'm not sure how many I used; 5-6 maybe. Cover them in sugar, cinnamon, the juice from half a lime and a splash of cognac (I used Braastads new organic cognac). Brown sugar, cinnamon and lime is also a good mix.

Mix 250 grams of butter (room temperature) and 250 grams of sugar until... looks like this. Put the bowl in the sink with warm water to make the mixing a little easier.

Add three eggs. Stir until it's all well combined.

Sift in 250 grams of flour, 1 tsp. of baking powder and 1 tsp. of vanilla powder, and stir well until it's all combined.

Fill the muffin cups about half full,

and add as many apple cubes as possible. Use your fingers and push them into the dough.

Bake for about 25 minutes at 200°C.

Yield: ca 24 muffins, depending on the size of the muffin cups. You can also make a cake of it. I think a 24 cm springform pan is a good size, and it should bake for a little longer than the muffins; 45 minutes maybe. Both the muffins and the cake freeze very well.

Sweet regards from your muffin princess, Astrid



  1. Sounds like a winner. I'll have to try this one. I think apple muffins and apple cake always taste best when made of local apples.
