I made these fantastic muffins for breakfast the other morning and I heard several, "MMMMMMMM's" as they quickly disappeared from the plate. Who wouldn't love a hot apple muffin with melted butter to start the day out?! They are so moist and taste like apple pie...thats got to bring a smile to anyones face! Make some up for your breakfast...see if you get a few smiles from the family....who know, they may even like mornings after this.
Good Morning Apple Muffins
2 c. flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 c. cold buttermilk
1/4 c. oil
3 t. vanilla
2 medium apples (peeled, cored and cut into small pieces)
3/4 c. chopped walnuts or pecans
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl mix all dry ingredient together (first 5 on the recipe). Stir until well blended. In another bowl mix buttermilk, oil, vanilla and egg; stir into flour mixture just until moist. Fold in apples and nuts. Batter will be lumpy.
Scoop batter into 12 greased muffin cups (1 muffin pan). Bake 17-20 minutes (your oven may take longer) or until toothpick is inserted in the center and comes out clean. Don't over cook. Serve muffins warm with butter...YUM!!!
