The only "extra" things you are doing with these muffins is coring, peeling, and slicing two apples, and making a yummy glaze that you brush on halfway through the baking time. They really don't take that long, particularly if you have a corer/peeler/slicer. I used one Pink Lady and on Jonathan apple this time around, because that's what I had in my fridge.
|Arrange the apple slices on top of the thick muffin|
batter, pressing gently to help them adhere
|It looks pretty even before you bake it . . .|
|This is after it's baked for 15 minutes. Remove the pan|
and brush glaze on top of each muffin
|Mmmmm . . . Glaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaze . . .|
|Bake till it gets all caramelly on top . . . mmmmm . . . caramelly|
|I had to make fancy muffins to use the totally|
fancy and beautiful muffin tier that my sister
Bonnie MADE for me!!! It was such a thoughtful
gift and it really dressed up the table.
|Muffins + oatmeal + pretty place settings = perfect breakfast|
|The glaze makes the muffin liners sticky, so I put each muffin in an|
extra liner so they wouldn't stick to the tier or the table. Bonnie
also gave me a ton of cute muffin liners for my birthday . . .
you can never have too many, people.
|The cheddar cheese in each muffin is what puts them over the top.|
