Apple Spice Muffins

All is right in the world when there are freshly baked muffins in my kitchen! At least that’s what it feels like when the aroma of these spicy muffins is filling our home. Yes, the spice mixture reminds me of harvest, but we enjoy these Delicious Spiced Apple Muffins throughout the year.

Making apple spice muffins

The little bit of clove and nutmeg give these rustic muffins a wonderful, cozy flavor! My mouth loves texture, and the combination of apple pieces, nuts and raisins is similar to a really good carrot cake. With a side of coffee and a slice of cheese, they can pass for breakfast!

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar (I may try to delete some of this next time, because they're plenty sweet)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 large apple, peeled, seeded, and chopped finely (or grated)
  • 2/3 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)

Place raisins in hot tap water to soak. Prepare apples and place in large bowl. Add oil and eggs; combine. In another bowl, combine all the rest of the ingredients. Stir the wet apple mixture into the dry ingredients. Add drained raisins. Mix thoroughly with spoon. Line muffin tins with paper cups or spray with non-stick spray. Fill cups with thick batter 3/4 full; muffins don't raise much.
Bake 325 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
  • I usually make a double batch of these, because they go fast! Perfect with a slice of cheese for a snack.
