Muffin Success!

I achieved apple muffin success last night!!

After licking my wounds from the previous night’s failure, I regrouped and did what any computer nerd does.

I googled…again.

And found this recipe for Apple Strudel Muffins.

I am finding that I really enjoy Allrecipes.com.  I love that people add their suggestions on how to tweak the recipes.

That’s just what I did for this one…doubling the apple (half chopped and half grated), adding cinnamon to the mixture, and dividing the sugar into 1/2 cup each of white and brown sugars.  I also melted the butter before mixing it for the topping.  Oh, and I added the juice from one freshly-squeezed orange.

Here’s what they looked before I slid them into the oven:

And when I pulled them out…

Oh man, oh man.  They are AMAZING!  Even better than the cinnamon muffins I made a few days ago!  The chopped apples give the muffins a wonderful texture.  They are moist and melt in your mouth.  Personally, I could envision adding a scoop of ice cream to these babies. Happy times, happy times!
