Warm spiced fluffy muffins with juicy molten apple pieces in each mouthful, and a crispy nutty topping. They are the bomb.
I make a batch as often as I can for pick up snacks, breakfast on the run, midmorning with a cuppa, or pudding with a scattering of berries. I can't get enough of them. Hope you love them too.
