Apple Cider Muffins

Mmm it’s that time of year you guys! We’re going apple picking this weekend and that just got me in the mood for all the apple cider goodies.

Tell me you’ve tried apple cider doughnuts at an orchard! They are so yummy and just scream fall . I make the muffin version at home because not all of us know how to conquer the homemade doughnuts 🙂

We picked up some apple cider from our local farmers market the other day and I decided to make apple cider muffins today. So here is a super quick and easy recipe the whole fam is going to love!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1.5 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 cup Apple Cider
  • 1/2 cup Butter, melted
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1 egg

TOPPING

  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Coat muffin mold with butter or line with cupcake liners.
  2. Add one cup of apple cider into a small pot and bring to a boil. Let apple cider reduce until only 1/2 cup is left. Let cool and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, brown sugar granulated sugar, cinnamon.
  4. In a second bowl, add the wet ingredients: cooled, apple cider concentrate, melted butter, vanilla extract, 1/4 cup milk, 1 egg.
  5. Pour the apple cider concentrate mixture into dry ingredients, mix slowly until batter forms.
  6. Scoop the batter into muffin mold. I like to fill about 2/3 full. Place in oven and bake for 18-20 minutes.
  7. While muffins are baking melt 1/4 cup butter in a small bowl. Mix granulated sugar and cinnamon on a plate.
  8. Once muffins are cooled, dip the tops in melted butter, then in cinnamon sugar mix to coat top.

This is such a yummy recipe you guys! Total fail proof too. Give it a try this season!!

XOXO, terri
