Apple Muffins

I LOVE this muffin! The apple taste is really light and perfect and the texture is super moist. And I just love how gorgeous they come out each time.  The diced apples and coarse brown sugar on top really makes this one of the most beautiful muffins ever!

This recipe calls for an entire cup of oil. I used vegetable oil. For those of you who find this unappetizing, you can sub it with 1/2 applesauce and 1/2 cup oil instead.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup oil (or 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup oil)
2 eggs, room temperature
3 cups peeled, cored, diced apples (~3)
< 1/2 cup coarse brown sugar for topping

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pan.
  2. Cream together sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla in a large bowl.
  3. In a smaller bowl, sift flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon together.
  4. Gradually add the dry flour mixture to the wet egg mixture until well combined.  The batter will be very thick.
  5. Add the diced apples but leave a few to top the muffins with!
  6. Fill muffin liners ~3/4 way full.
  7. Place remaining diced apples on top and sprinkle with coarse brown sugar.
  8. Bake 20-24 minutes until a toothpick that is inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Makes ~18 muffins.
