Day 344: Caramel Apple Muffins

Yield: 4-5 muffins
Time (Start to Finish): 1 hour

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 cup brown sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp all spice
pinch salt
½ cup milk
1 egg
1/8 cup butter, melted
½ cup peeled and cubed green apple

5 store bought caramels

1. Preheat oven to 400F and line a muffin tin with papers or spray with non stick spray
2. Mix together the flour, baking soda, sugar, cinnamon, all spice and salt
3. Add the milk and egg
4. Add the melted butter
5. Fold into the batter the apple pieces
6. Pour the batter into each tin filling to half way
7. Take a caramel and push it into the center of each muffin, making sure the top is covered with batter, and that the batter doesn’t fill the tin over ¾ of the way
8. Bake for 20 min or until the muffin is cooked. A toothpick in the center wont help you, so put it in the side

Notes: This idea came from Lucy’s house! She told me about something like this she had made, and so I wanted to try it! They taste great, best right out of the oven because otherwise the caramel kind of rehardens and then it is not the same texture as the muffin. I love muffins, and the more I make them the more I see how easy they are! I think these can be made in a bran type muffin as well if you are looking for something a little more healthy. I hope you like them guys!
