After a quick search online I came up with this recipe for apple muffins. I figured I’d just roll with it and see how it goes.
And it went AWESOMELY. Man, these muffins are good. There are chunks of apple that give the muffin a nice sweet bite. The bottom is soft and fluffy and the top has a crunchy brown sugar crust. They taste like fall. They’re not too sweet (so I can eat like five of them in one sitting) either. It’s a good thing, since I doubled the recipe and somehow ended up with sixty muffins. No lie.
Also, yes, that is a rocket ship oven mitt. It took me four hours to make and only kind of protects your hand from high heat. Also, it’s tiny.

- 1 cup oil
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 apples, peeled, cored, and diced
- brown sugar for topping
Preheat the oven to 350°.
In a large bowl, cream together the oil and sugar. Add the vanilla and the eggs one at a time.
In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture. The batter will be very very thick.
Using a rubber scraper, mix in the apples.
Fill lined muffin tins 3/4 of the way full and sprinkle with brown sugar.
Bake for 20-24 minutes. Makes 24 muffins.
