Apple Pie Muffins
Apple Pie Muffins – Moist, fluffy goodness that tastes JUST like apple pie!
Happy Fall Y’All!
Here in St. Louis, we have dipped down into the 50’s at night a couple of time and I am loving it!
Of course, it’s also that time of year where you throw on layers in the morning and by afternoon you’re peeling them off and dying of a heat stroke. haha
I do love fresh Apple Pie this time of year, so why not some Apple Pie Muffins too?
Fall is literally my favorite time of year!
Today is our reveal day for Secret Recipe Club! This month I was assigned Lavender and Lovage written by Karen.
I could never do Karen’s amazing life story justice… it’s so awesome.
She was born in South Africa and moved to England where she splits her time there and the South of France.
She has lived ALL over the place and in some pretty amazing places!
Karen’s blog is filled with the most amazing recipes and initially my list was long. Way too long.
My favorites that made it to the final cut were Apple, Lemon and Elderflower Drizzle Cake, Strawberry & Elderflower Cake and Tart Topping (see a theme here? I just discovered Elderflower and I LOVE it!).
I was also pretty smitten with her “Kladdkaka” Swedish Chocolate Fudge Cake and her Apple Rose Tarts.
I finally settled on the Apple Pie Muffins for a few reasons.
I had an abundance of apples just waiting to be used in the right recipe, but on top of that, her incredible photos made them look so fabulous and they sounded so perfect for this time of year.
I was sold.
I didn’t make any changes except the conversion of self rising flour to all purpose flour as well as to American Measurements.
I also didn’t sprinkle the Demerara sugar on top like she did simply because I didn’t have any, but I did sprinkle some apple pie spice on top before baking.
Each bite of this incredible muffin is moist and fluffy filled with apple goodness.
We made several batches because Karen said they are freezable.
We went ahead and thawed the second batch and they tasted just as good, if not better maybe since all the flavors were together longer.
Of course in fairness we had half a dozen gone before they had even cooled from the first batch so I don’t have much to go on there.
They are SO good. Perfect with your morning cup of coffee or tea and great as an afternoon pick me up!

Oh I wish we actually had fall here! Fall arrives sometime in November in southern California and lasts about 15 minutes. At least we have apples! And I’m planning on making these muffins! Love Karen’s blog!
Go up to Oak Glen. It’s a little like the Midwestern fall I grew up with and miss so much. You can pick your own apples or buy some from a stand, which is what I did to make these very tasty muffins. If you get there at the right time, you’ll see actual autumn leaves on the trees and ground. I live in L.A., and try to get there at least one every fall.
Thanks for your kind words and for making one of my favourite recipes too! They look JUST amazing, and are such a great way to enjoy the season’s harvest of apples! Happy Reveal Day and thanks again! Karen
Nothing says fall like apples – and all the taste of an apple pie in a muffin sounds great. Fantastic SRC pick
I went apple picking and have more apples than I can eat! I need to get baking with them and these muffins sound perfect.
You hit gold with Karen’s blog! And that first photo of your beautiful muffin made my heart skip a beat… GORGEOUS!
Great choice for your assignment!
I just happen to have some apples… These look lovely, and I am definitely going to have to make some soon.
Oh muffins will always have my heart. A quick breakfast or a to go snack. We make them weekly. These apple pie muffins look like a winner. Happy Reveal Day!
These look amazing! I can’t wait to make them since I have a bunch of apples at home. Great pick this month.
Yum! I want to lick my screen!
Great job on your post. Happy Reveal Day!!
These muffins look wonderful. I always love apple muffins in the fall and I always seem to have too many apples. I find that a lot of apple breads can be a little gummy, but these look perfect. Wonderful SRC post!
This recipe is really easy, and i have apples on hand that want to party. I am making these tomorrow.
I love Karen’s blog, and considered making these muffins when I was assigned to it! YAY on a great recipe, good all year long, imho. Great SRC recipe!
One can never have too many muffin recipes. This one looks like a winner, especially the whole of idea of apples. Great choice
