Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Apple Muffins

on April 1, 2016

The recipe for today is from my sister, so I had to share a pic of her, and this one is an early one! It looks like she’s only a couple of weeks old, but don’t let the sleepy baby thing fool you. She’d soon be running around getting into trouble, like hitting her mouth on our footstool and knocking out a tooth before she was a year old! It looks like I’m already being the motherly type, making sure she’s comfortable! Ha!


Love my mom’s plaid pants – and I have on a plaid shirt – plaid must have been all the rage back then!

So yes, this is my sister’s recipe, and by the looks of the handwriting, it’s from her 7th grade Home Ec class. She didn’t have the same teacher I did even though we went to the same school (7 years apart), in fact, she had one of Grandma’s sister-in-laws for her teacher. The Home Ec teachers in our school gave us the BEST recipes. They really were just great: easy, quick, and delicious!!! These Apple Muffins will be a regular in your arsenal, and you’re going to want to keep this one handy, always.



These muffins are absolutely delicious!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Apple Muffins

Beat well:

1 egg


1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup salad oil (I used canola)


1 apple, diced with the peel left on it

In a bowl, mix:

1 1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Make a well in the center of dry ingredients.

Add liquid ingredients and stir only until damp.

Mixture should be lumpy.

Fill greased muffin tins or papers 2/3 full and sprinkle with topping.


1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Sprinkle over top of muffins before baking.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.


I get everything ready to go before starting so I can dice the apple last and it won’t turn brown. The topping is so good on these muffins.


Everything ready? Let’s mix it up.


Remember to not stir the muffin batter too much or you’ll get tunnels in the muffins. Seriously – that’s still in my head from my 7th grade Home Ec teacher. Ha!


Get that topping on and into the oven they go.


I can’t stress enough – the topping makes all the difference.


These muffins are so good  – I don’t care when you eat them. You could have them for breakfast, afternoon coffee, or snack time, anytime. They’re easy – you can do this – a 7th grader could do it! Make a batch of these, follow the words of your 7th grade Home Ec teacher, and you’ll see how good they can be! Then call up your sister and have her come over for some muffins and a cup of coffee. You can chat about the old days – like when you were in 7th grade Home Ec.
