Hello ya’ll! Today we are making Apple Scone Muffins! I came up with this recipe based on a horrible English recipe I found online, so I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
What you’ll need:
- 2 1/2 cups of flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup of fresh cold milk
- 8 tbsp of butter/1 stick (melted and cooled)
- 1 chopped green apple
- 1 lemon
- Cute muffin liners!
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp all spice
- 1/4 tsp cloves
- 2 tbsp of chopped butter
- 1 green apple (or nuts if you’d rather)
Yields: 15-18 standard muffins
Heat oven to 375 degrees!
Topping goes first:
Combine all the dry ingredients first and then add in chopped butter. Then chop up both apples and cover in lemon juice to ensure they won’t brown. Use half the apples (1 apple) and combine into the mixture. Put the mixture into the fridge. Apples should be cut as shown below and the combined mixture of the topping is below as well.
Now it’s batter time:
Add your flour, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl and mix well. Slowly add the rest of the apples covered in lemon juice.
In a separate larger bowl, beat egg and sugar together until they are well combined. Then, add your melted and cooled butter, stir well. When combined, add cup of milk and stir again!
Add your dry mixture to the wet one, mixing with a large spoon or fork. Mix until your mixture almost looks like curdled/rancid milk (gross image, sorry). Don’t over mix because that can cause your muffins to be too stiff.
Scoop mixture into your adorable liners until the cups are almost full.
Then remove your topping from the refrigerator and sprinkle on top. You should have enough batter and topping for 15-18 muffins.
Place muffins into the preheated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes, until the outsides are hard and a little browned.
Lay them on a cooling rack to stop them from baking more.
Now here’s the good part! After they have cooled, get out some butter (or pumpkin butter, as my sister likes them) and inhale. They are delicious, but more dry like a scone and personally I like them better with butter and a spot of tea!
