Apple Muffins with Cinnamon & Sugar Crunch Topping – Christmas Recipes

This is another recipe to be added in your Christmas baking list..A simple apple muffins which is so easy to make and delicious to eat…This muffin taste so fruity because of the apples that are added in this..You could never complain about the fruity and cinnamon aroma wafting from these muffins as you bake them..
The cool addition to these muffins are the crunch topping..It gives a lovely crispy top layer  to the muffins, but the interior is so fluffy…These muffins don’t rise too much because of the apples which we add in, so you have to fill it to the top of the muffin cases..

I hope you will try it and let me know what you think..

anthony stemke said... Best Blogger Tips

Tasty looking muffins.
Do you think maybe adding a little baking soda to the batter would leaven it more; or perhaps it doesn't need it.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi aarthi. Inspried from ur baking and grilling recipes. so, brought a convection microwave. As you are a very good web surfer, Plz suggest me some sites to purchase baking stuff like cake tins, muffin trays, muffin wraps, pastry brush, hand mixers etc for minimal prices.

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@MadhuYou can buy it frm ebay, fab furnish, zansaar

Hi Aarthi, how to make buttermilk? Sorry, I'm not sure about it...

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Anonymousdilute little water in the curd. or check this post

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi aarthi..I have non stick muffin molds.Is muffin cases really necessary? or we can pour the batter directly in the molds.ANd if yes Do we have to grease the molds before pouring batter?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Anonymoussome muffins need them, because they may stick. you can spray it with oil and then pour and bake too.
