Apple Pie Muffins
Comments & Modifications:
- I cut down on the toppings on these a lot, and just used streusel from fridge, again from last fall, oops.
- The apples I used may have been "tart" but only because they had been sitting in the fridge for at least a few months. I wouldn't have eaten them plain, but they were fine for baking.
- I subbed dark brown sugar, and I think it added a lot of flavor.
- I may have added some cinnamon to the batter, to compensate for less in the topping. I have no idea, but I'm sure it would work out fine either way. I bet a bit of nutmeg would also be lovely.
Verdict: Dan really liked these. Hopefully I won't only make them when I have nasty old apples to use up.
Update: The nutmeg was indeed lovely. However, these muffins are just overwhelmingly sweet. I don't know how to fix that without changing the texture and flavor! Also, I'd increase the salt to at least half a teaspoon.
