I snitched the recipe from Allrecipes.com under “Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins”. “Easy” is relative, of course. I did prepare them easily enough, especially since we have an apple peeler and corer which my son was thrilled to be allowed to use by himself! But as I said in an earlier post, they
exploded melted out over the edges and onto the bottom of my oven! They didn’t look pretty, but once I pried them from the pan, they were so addicting, I had to make them again! Looking at the recipe again, I noticed many reviews having the same problem. Recipe says it yields 6, however, I filled 12 muffin cups, and they still overflowed. Why would I assume they, this big, well known recipe company, would have their measurements right?! Silly me.
For round two I used a cake pan rather than muffin tin and it worked beautifully! Once cooled, I cut them into bite size pieces. Good thing they were off to a party (where they were a bit hit), otherwise this would have been a huge mistake! They’re hard to resist in the first place, but in tiny morsels, it’s hard to justify not eating one more, and just one more after that, and maybe just one last one…. oh they’re so little, one tiny little piece more won’t hurt anybody? Right?
Just in case the link doesn’t work (I mean you can’t be too careful), I’ve copied the recipe below, noting my suggestions in red. (I just pressed ‘kitchen view’ under their muffin recipe, thinking maybe I’d get a printable page, and got a Baked Ziti recipe card! Beware of allrecipe.com. Maybe they just like to mess with you!) If you make them and don’t like them for some strange reason, drop them by my house. We wouldn’t want them to go to waste!
