Spiced Muffins with a crunchy, nutty topping and a little apple butter surprise inside!

Apple Butter Muffins
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/8 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup thick Country Store Apple Butter (divided)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients.  Combine egg, milk, oil and 1/2 cup Apple Butter.  Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.  Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups with a rounded Tablespoon of batter.  Top each with a rounded Tablespoon of remaining Apple Butter and then remaining batter.  Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over muffins.

Bake at 400 degrees F. for 15-18 minutes.  Cool 10 minutes before removing from muffin pan.

  1. These look like they'd be good with some cider or hot chocolate. Yum!

  2. I thought I had my favorite muffin down -- a cream cheese stuffed pumpkin muffin. I'm thinking this baby just might top it! Wow!

  3. They sound great, bet they'd work well with my leftover rhubarb butter too:@)

  4. I am super excited to try these! I have some homemade apple butter that I didn't use up last year and I think that it would be a good thing to do with it!!! Fall is here and so are the apple recipes... bring on the pumpkin :)

  5. I love these they looks so yummy, they will go with a nice cup of hot tea! I will be making these! Just tweaking it with whole wheat flour and some other ingredients! Thanks again!
