There’s something about the smell of cinnamon baking in the oven that is so wonderful and warm, it just makes you feel good.
I made these cinnamon apple muffins because they’ve been on my mind since the beginning of summer! ever since I posted these apple date muffins, I’ve been itching to make a cinnamon version so when I got my hands on some lovely big and juicy apples I knew it was a go.
I went all out with the cinnamon here because I really wanted that flavour to shine and let’s face it, cinnamon is the best! I added 1 teaspoon to the muffins themselves AND another 1/2 teaspoon to soak into the apples along with some sugar and brown sugar of course! lots of wonderful brown sugar here.
Speaking of brown sugar, I initially set out to make a vanilla caramel glaze to dunk the muffins into but I didn’t have any butter so I ended up making the best glaze I’ve ever had. This brown sugar glaze is very simple to make. Just icing sugar, soft brown sugar, some warm cream and a splash of vanilla. I like to add a pinch of salt too and you can also add in a tablespoon or two of butter for some extra volume. However you make it, just make it! it’s so good!
As I mentioned above, I like to finely chop up my apples, add them to a bowl and sprinkle some sugar on top as well as cinnamon. Let this mixture sit as you prepare the muffin batter, which is just a very easy wet to dry mix recipe, and by the time you’re ready to add the apples, they’ll be all nice and flavourful and have released lots of delicious juices. Make sure to add all of this juice to the batter along with the apples.
Fill your muffin tray to the top and bake away. As usual you bake them for a few minutes at 200C then lower the temperature to 180C to continue baking until the muffins are cooked through. This gives the muffins that beautiful big muffin to so don’t skip this step.
I hope you guys love these muffins as much as my family and I did.
