TWD: Coffee-Break Muffins

Posted by C. A. - Categoriezed under: TWD

It is Tuesday evening again and here I am at 9:00 PM  just beginning work on my post which means that, as usual, it will just barely squeak by the deadline.  I really did intend to get to this sooner; I had the best of intention but you know what they say about good intentions.  Why should this week be different than any other you might ask.  Well, this week’s recipe was selected by…me!  It is terribly rude for the hostess to be late, so I must beg your forgiveness…you do forgive me, don’t you?

Perhaps if I share some of my muffins with you….

This recipe was inspired by the need to use up some pre-sliced apples that were starting to brown a bit; there weren’t very many of them so many of my normal apple based recipes just weren’t an option.  So I decided to get creative and come up with something new.  Unfortunately, my creativity used most of my mixing bowls and challenged my limited counter space.  But don’t let that stop you from following along – I assure you these are worth all the bowls it took to make them.  Grab the recipe and let’s go!
