Cheddar Apple Muffins


With all of the apples coming ready on the Golden Delicious Apple tree outside our front door I needed to start coming up with things to do with them. These turned out simply scrumptious!

1 large apple, such as the golden delicious or granny smith
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup regular uncooked oatmeal
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup finely grated cheddar cheese

1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and butter each cup in a standard muffin tin.
2. Peel, halve and core the apple, cut into 1/8 inch dices.
3. In a large mixing bowl mix together the flour, oatmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside. In another bowl whisk together the eggs, milk and melted butter until smooth then stir in the apples and cheese. Add the dry ingredients and stir until just blended, don't over mix.
4. Spoon into the muffin tims, filling each cup about 3/4 full. Bake about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 
5. Cool in the tin for 3 minutes, then remove. Can be served warm or cold.

These are great with a honey butter!! Enjoy!
