Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Apple picking at Orleans Fruit Farm 

I'm no baker, and rarely post recipes on my blog, but since it's a rainy day in September (during a global pandemic, no less) I thought it would be the perfect time to share this delicious recipe!

One of our annual traditions is going apple picking, and we decided to make these simple apple cinnamon muffins that are perfect to eat as a snack, or even for breakfast. They're easy to make--my 12 year old made these on his own. 

So yummy!

Here's what you need: 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 
  • 2 cups diced apples (peeled, obviously)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk 
For the topping: 
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup ground cinnamon
Instructions: 
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. 
  2. Mix together 2 cups flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl--set aside. 
  3. Mix 2 teaspoons flour with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Toss diced apples with the flour and cinnamon mixture in another bowl and set aside. 
  4. Cream together butter and sugar, and add one egg at a time. Mix in vanilla. 
  5. Add the flour mixture to this bowl, alternating with the milk. Stir until combined. 
  6. Add in the diced apples and then scoop the mixture into prepared muffin tins, filling about 3/4 full. 
  7. Bake for 30 minutes. 
  8. Prepare muffin topping while muffins are baking. 
  9. Once muffins have baked and cooled down, brush the butter on and then dip into the cinnamon mixture. 
  10. Enjoy!

Happy To Be A ShoeMe.ca Shoe Style Ambassador (Plus A Shoe Giveaway!)

Shopping, as you all know, is a passion of mine. I love sharing shopping news with my readers and friends and letting everyone know about fantastic deals, new products I love, and great new sites that are worth checking out. When it comes to retail therapy, there is nothing quite like shoe shopping. Several weeks ago, I was approached by Shoeme.ca  and was asked if I wanted to be their Shoe Style Ambassador . I said YES! YES! YES! quickly, without hesitation, because, well, shopping and shoes? What's not to love? Sigh... Shoeme.ca is an online Canadian shoe store that carries all the brands you love: Nine West, Sam Edelman, Geox, Hush Puppies, Stride Rite, Timberland, UGG, ECCO, Crocs, Converse, Donald J Pliner, BCBG, and so much more.

Shopping online has s

Chateau Laurier: Ottawa's Most Luxurious Hotel Celebrates Winter With A Wildly Winterlude Package

I love exploring luxurious hotels in every city I visit–it's one of my favourite thing to do. Some people aren't hotel people; I'm not one of those people. I even love staying in hotels in the city I live in. Staycations are fun, and a great way to re-discover things about your city all over again. Sometimes, a staycation is all you need to feel like you're on vacation. Chateau Laurier is Ottawa's most luxurious hotel located minutes from Parliament Hill, Rideau Centre, the Byward Market and Rideau Canal, and it's one place I love visiting. It holds a special place in my heart because it's where my husband and I stayed after our wedding, before we left for our honeymoon to Aruba, and it's where my sister got married. We also love spending summer evenings on the Wilfrid's patio, taking in the glorious sunset while drinking champagne. I had the pleasure of staying at the Chateau Laurier last month, to experience and review the property

NABOB Coffee Prize Pack

What's your morning routine like? If it's anything like mine, it's a little crazy. My children are up at the same time as me (super early in the morning, usually around 6 a.m.) and from that moment on, it's go-go-go until they're at school and I'm at work–where I finally get to enjoy my first cup of coffee. Weekends are a little more relaxed–I'm able to sip my coffee at home before we start the day. I can't imagine life without coffee–I usually have about two to three cups a day (is that bad? Please tell me it's not bad). I love finding out that brands I love are giving back in great ways, and recently, NABOB partnered with Tree Canada to encourage Canadians to take the NABOB Pod Pledge. For every Canadian that commits to recycling their NABOB pods, NABOB and Tree Canada will plant a tree in an area of need across Canada. So it's a win-win situation: you enjoy your coffee guilt-free and help give back to the environment at the same time! Y
