Simple apple muffins
Apples and cinnamon have some very delicious things (like our apple cake and apple chips)! So I decided to combine these two delicacies to make the perfect simple muffin recipe-apple cinnamon muffins. They are fluffy and moist inside, with beautiful golden muffin tops. The muffins have delicious butter, cinnamon and sweet apple flavors. Then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar to make the most delicious muffin recipe.

You will end up with muffins with a soft inside filled with delicious cinnamon and apples and a perfect golden brown on top. I like these breakfast or afternoon snacks, they are delicious muffin recipes that your whole family will love.
How to make apple cinnamon muffins
Prepare. Preheat the oven first, then line the muffin pan with paper. If you prefer, you can lightly grease the grease with non-stick cooking spray.
Wet ingredients. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. I like to use a little brown sugar because it adds more flavor. Then mix 1 egg at a time, then add vanilla extract.
Dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, remaining cinnamon, and salt. Mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture little by little, alternating with a little milk until the mixture is uniform.
Apple. Chop and peel the apple, then gently stir with cinnamon. Then stir in the chopped apples. I like to use green apples when baking because they become sweet and soft when baking.
bake. Use a spoon to pour the batter into the prepared muffin pan, then sprinkle cinnamon sugar on the top of each cake. The muffins will bake for about 17-20 minutes, or until the top looks golden and the toothpicks inserted are clean.

Excessive mixing will cause the muffins to harden, which is undesirable.
The best apples for muffins: As we mentioned above, we prefer to make these muffins with Granny Smith apples, but most apples work well. It usually depends on the sweetness or acidity of the flavor you like, but these are some of the most popular apples used to make muffins:
- Honey crisp
- Granny Smith.
- Pink lady
