Back home, it was into the kitchen to warm up and make some homey apple muffins. Nothing fancy but full of rustic goodness. They are on the dense side with a crisp outside and tender inside and loaded with apple and raisins.
They are a hearty breakfast favorite in our home.
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
1/4 cup milk (I like to add a splash more)
1 extra large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (large) peeled, finely chopped tart green apple
1 package (1 cup) Sun-Maid Baking Raisins
HEAT oven to 400 F. Grease or line 12 (2 -inch) muffin cups with paper baking cups.
COMBINE flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt, mix well.
COMBINE butter, milk, egg, vanilla and apple.
ADD to flour mixture; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
FOLD in raisins.
SPOON batter into prepared muffin cups.
BAKE at 400 F in upper third of oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Panera has lots of yummy things! Nice pictures of some fun statues!
