I've made these a couple different times and they have been an absolute hit - like a there-were-none-left hit. Soft and tender apples covered in a caramel glaze are the stars of this show! Haven't tried it yet, but vanilla ice cream probably wouldn't be a bad idea!

Apple Base:


Instructions Checklist
  • Stir apples, brown sugar, butter, and salt in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and syrupy, about 30 minutes. Stir in walnuts.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a muffin tin; divide apple mixture among muffin cups.

  • Whisk flour, brown sugar, baking powder, apple pie spice, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a small well in the center and set aside.

  • Combine butter, applesauce, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla extract. Pour into the well in the flour mixture. Mix until just combined; batter should be lumpy. Pour batter over apple mixture in the muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of each muffin. Carefully flip pan onto a serving platter; serve hot.

Dessert? Breakfast? Snack? These were so yummy they could transform into any of those! Followed as written. My apples almost started to burn at 20 minutes, so keep a close eye on them. I had a little extra batter,but others had 12 muffins good sized muffins. Yummy! Read More
