Great Muffin Recipe

Cheddar Apple Muffins

So I made this muffin recipe after tasting some delicious Cheddar and apple muffins from your run of the mill grocery store, and wanted more. I have made some slight adjustments to this recipe by adding flax, buttermilk, and increasing the sugar slightly to accommodate these ingredients. The texture was amazing! I really like the base to this muffin recipe, and will try it today with other flavors. I will let you all know how it turns out. Tip: If you want your muffins to have nice pointed tops like commercially baked ones. You must fill your muffin tins right to the top. This may require sometimes making a double batch which always sucks..LOL. Enjoy!!!

3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup ground flax
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
2 eggs
3/4 cup apple juice
1 cup butter milk
1/2 cup butter melted
2 cups peeled, finely chopped apples

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Combine flour, sugar,flax, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in large bowl. Mix in cheese. Beat eggs in medium-sized bowl. Add apple juice and buttermilk; stir in butter and apple. Add all at once to flour mixture, Stir just until moistened. Fill greased muffin tins. Bake for 25- 30 minutes. Makes one pan of muffin loaf tins, or 18 regular-sized muffins.
