Apple Cheddar Muffins Recipe

If you like tart apples and cheese, you'll love these moist, merry muffins. My family insists I make them for the holiday, but they're so easy to fix that I often whip up a batch or two on camping and canoe trips as well.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 medium tart apples, peeled and chopped

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients; stir in 1 cup cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese. In a small bowl, beat the egg, buttermilk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apples.
  • 2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Sprinkle with the remaining cheddar cheese. Bake at 400° for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen.
