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!

Mommy and Me Monday!

Why do weekends go by so fast? Monday is here yet again - and it's always a bit of a bittersweet day for me. On one hand, I love getting dressed up and going to work, going to the gym during the lunch hour, shopping, or lunching with friends -but at the same time, I miss my boys terribly when I go to work! Nothing is as sweet to me as weekends with my boys. Waking up together, taking our time to get dressed, and doing whatever we want. Yesterday, we went to the sugar bush and it was amazing - the kids had the greatest time, and I was even able to get in a picture with them! The truly amazing thing is that we're all looking at the camera and smiling! You all know this is not something that comes easy with children, right? Now I'll be able to look at their little smiley faces all day long... Hosted by the lovely Krystyn for Mommy and Me Monday!

Old School Blogging

A couple of nights ago, I was thinking about how much I miss Old School Blogging. You know? From a few years ago, when things were just... blogs, and nothing more? Just our stories, written from our hearts, here for the world, for our little community, to read? When we had more time, it seems, to sit down and read posts from start to finish, when we were able to comment without problems because we weren't doing it from our iPhones, and when we didn't "favourite" every post we wanted to eventually get around to reading... (because we don't always get back to those posts, do we?) I started blogging in 2007, which to some of you is still not even that Old School , but to me, it's well... old enough. My first born son, now in grade one, was only 18 months old when I started this little blog. This little blog has been very good to me, for so many reasons, mainly because of the friendships I've formed, and the opportunties I've experienced. I'm ver
