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!

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's multi-mil…

The First St. Regis In Canada Opens Its Doors In Toronto

Canada's first St. Regis has finally arrived in Canada, making a grand entrance in downtown Toronto. With personalized butler service, a lobby bar, 124 spacious suites, a two-level spa, large swimming pool, and a stunning restaurant on the 31st floor, the hotel definitely caters to those who love fine dining, relaxation, and luxury.

I was thrilled to find out Canada was getting their very own St. Regis, but even more excited when I was invited to review the new hotel a few weeks ago. I've had the pleasure of experiencing the St. Regis Bal Harbour twice, and I instantly knew that my experience at St. Regis Toronto would be equally as memorable–for myself, for my husband, and for our children.

Fine Dining 

The newest restaurant that's causing a lot of buzz in Toronto is LOUIX LOUIS, on the 31st. floor of St. Regis Toronto. It's the perfect place to indulge in your most desired cravings, from caviar to champagne, and everything in between. The menu features items like who…
