Apple Cinnamon muffins

It has been too long.....

Since I baked,
Since I took photographs,
Since I was creative...

It seems once school starts I can't seem to find enough time to let my creativity out and I have phases where all I want to do is bake, read, or do some random DIY's. Currently my roommate and I want to make an herb garden somewhere in our apartment...not that I am sure where considering we have so much stuff. With this new semester and finally having a job, my schedule seems to be so busy and even doing simple things such as baking and hanging with friends seems to put me behind. I don't even want to think about how stressed I will be tomorrow since I didn't study last night and apparently I'm not planning to study this morning.

On a better not. The weather this morning was just perfect. I can finally start to feel fall coming and I am already thinking of all the lovely smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. I can finally start to cuddle up in my bed and open up a good book to read with my windows open. I think one of the best things is when it is a cool day like today with all the windows open and you can just feel the breeze.

With fall on the way I was in the mood for something warm and comforting. The special thing about these muffins is that they happen to be kind of my own. I don't know on what level you can really call a recipe your own but I was still happy that I finally branched out. I started off with this basic recipe and then went from there.

Apple Cinnamon Muffins


1 tbs baking powder
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp all spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon 
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 white sugar
1/2 brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter 
1/2 cup milk
1 apple finely sliced (or desired size)

Preheat oven to 350.

Add baking powder, flour, and spices together in a bowl. 

In a separate bowl add sugar and butter and beat until well mixed. Add the two eggs, mix, then add the milk and mix until creamy. Put the apples bits into the creamed mixture and stir until evenly spread throughout. Add the dry ingredients to the creamy and stir softly until completely mixed.

Spray muffin pan with cooking spray or use liners. Add mixture to each muffin pan and bake for about 13 minutes.
