19 Sep 2017 Apple Honey Muffins
This is a perfectly sweet, simply delicious muffin for your Rosh Hashanah and Yom Tov table. The first run, with the original recipe that I wrote, was so-so and needed lots of tweaking 🙂 Suffice it to say that I’m not sharing that one with you!
The second run, which I am happily sharing below, was a great surprise and takes just minutes to throw together – no mixer required! This is a perfect muffin, with great flavors, beautiful color, a light texture, and the right balance of honey and sweetness.
Apple Honey Muffins
Pre-heat the oven to 350*. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners (for standard size muffins).
In a large bowl, combine:
1 1/2 c. white whole wheat flour, dash salt, 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/4 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 c. light brown sugar.
In a different bowl, combine:
1/3 c. oil, 1/2 c. honey, 2 lightly beaten eggs, 1/2 c. orange juice.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry, stirring all to combine, till batter is mixed.
Gently fold in 1 Gala apple, peeled and diced.
Spoon batter into paper lined muffins cups. Bake on 350* for about 20 minutes, till muffins are dry. Cool on wire racks.
Yield: 12 standard size muffins.
Note: if you prefer smaller muffins, especially as a side dish for your Yom Tov meal, use tin foil muffin cups – filling the cups only halfway. Or try these as mini muffins! Adjust baking time accordingly for smaller muffins.
Enjoy and wishing you a wonderful Yom Tov and a k’siva v’chasima tova to all,
