Apple butter muffins

Because it’s fall and because we have 2 jars of apple butter sitting around in the pantry, and because kids like something sweet for breakfast, we have these muffins. If you don’t have any apple butter, apple sauce would work just fine, especially the cinnamon kind. And if you have Transformers muffin cups, so much the better.

Apple Butter Muffins


  • 1/2 C butter
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1/4 C white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t Vanilla
  • 3/4 C apple butter
  • 1 1/4 C oat flour
  • 3/4 C whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 3/4 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 C buttermilk

Crumb Topping:

  • 1/4 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C flour
  • 4 T cold butter

Preheat oven to 350. Beat butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla in mixer. Mix together flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add buttermilk to wet ingredients. Then add flour mixture and apple butter a little at a time, alternating between the two. Don’t overmix. Put  the batter into a muffin tin, lined with muffin papers. I put about a 1/4 C in each.

To make crumb topping, mix flour and sugar. Then cut in butter with fingers, knives, or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Top each muffin with about a teaspoon (or more) of streusel topping.

Bake for 17 minutes, or until muffins are just set in the middle.

I know it has weird ingredients (red #40?) but come on, clearly the Bloomfield Volunteer Fire Department is a worthy cause.
