Simple Apple Muffins

Today I made apple muffins because I love apples, especially in the fall.  These muffins are great for breakfasts, for snacks and for lunch box treats.  I use a baking mix so they can be put together pretty quickly with these ingredients:

2 cups baking mix (such as Bisquick or Jiffy)

3/4 cup applesauce

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup milk

1 egg

1 tablespoon oil

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, mix egg and sugars together to combine.

Add baking mix, applesauce, oil, cinnamon and milk until blended.

Put into greased muffin tin or muffin tin lined with baking cups.  Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

They are so light and fluffy. This recipe makes about 14-16 standard muffins.

What is your favorite apple recipe?

Simple Pumpkin Muffins

I could feel the temperature dropping this weekend here in Southern California.   We were busy moving our son back to college, so when I got back home I wanted to bake something I could put together pretty quickly.   I love to bake a little something on Sunday evenings as a last little celebration before the weekend is over.   I decided on these simple pumpkin muffins.  The cinnamon topping adds a tasty crunch.

Muffin batter:

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 cup water

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix sugar, melted butter, pumpkin, water and eggs until blended.

Add remaining ingredients.

Fill a greased or lined muffin tin and add a spoonful of topping (recipe below).

1/4 cup sugar

3 tablespoons flour

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoon butter (cut up)

Mix above ingredients in small bowl.

Bake at 350 degrees for 28-30 minutes.  Makes a dozen full size muffins.

You can use fresh pumpkin too if you steam it and blend it.  I love the way it comes out with the canned pumpkin.

How was your weekend?
