Apple Walnut Muffins

Author Notes: These are best fresh out of the oven with some plugra butter. I find that when baking it really is worth it to purchase a small digital scale. They shouldn't cost you more than $30 and can be found at any good cooking store or on Amazon. sweetbelle

Makes: 24 muffins

  • 12 ounces granulated sugar
  • 16.5 ounces All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 ounces unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk, shaken
  • 1 1/2 lemons, zested and juiced
  • 1 granny smith apple
  • 2 gala or fuji apples
  • 6 ounces walnuts, chopped
  • turbinado sugar
  1. Sift sugar, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon into a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Place eggs into a bowl. Whisk warm, melted butter into eggs in four additions. You should end up with a fluffy completely emulsified mixture. Add the buttermilk, lemon juice and lemon zest. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients in 3 additions using a spatula.
  4. Peel and cut apples. Place them in a food processor and process until they are small pieces, just before they become a puree. Fold into muffin batter.
  5. Using a 2 ounce ice cream scooper portion muffin batter into baking liners in a muffin tin. Top each muffin with chopped walnuts and a sprinkling of turbinado sugar.
  6. Place in a preheated 325 degree oven. Bake for 15 minutes and then turn, bake for another 10 minutes. Check doneness with a toothpick and continue baking if necessary.
  7. Enjoy!
