Basic Muffin Mix and Chunky Apple Muffins

A friend shared a recipe with me and over the course of the last few weeks I've been tweaking it and having the family taste test my creations.  I make a quadruple batch of the mix and store in an air tight container (will keep for up to three months).  For sake of organization in the tabs above this will be posted under the "Bread" and "Breakfast" tabs.  I'll add new variations as I test them and tweak.  Enjoy!

Basic Muffin Mix
8 cups all purpose unbleached flour (you can use half wheat if you like)
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 T. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg

Basic Muffins
2 3/4 c. muffin mix
1 c. milk
1/3 c. honey
1 egg, beaten
1/2  c. oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray muffin pans with cooking spray.  Put muffin mix in medium bowl.  Combine egg, milk, honey, and oil in a small bowl.  Add wet ingredients all at once to muffin mix.  Stir until just moist.  Batter should be lumpy.  Spoon into muffin pans.  Bake approx. 15 - 17 minutes.  Makes 12 muffins.



Chunky Apple Muffins
Add the following to the wet ingredients:
1/2 c. applesauce
1 1/2 c. chopped apples (I used two small/medium apples)
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3 T. sugar

Topping:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup (packed) brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Mix the topping ingredients together and spoon over the muffins before baking.  Slightly press the topping into the tops of the muffins (helps the sugars to not fall off).

Enjoy!

Your apple muffins sound wonderful. This is my first visit to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier entries. I'm so glad I did that. I really love the food and recipes you share with your readers. I also love the dulcimer music. I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

Thank for such a tasty recipe. I would just comment that I normally use brown sugar or whole-wheat flour. Gives new color, new texture. Thanks again for sharing it.
