Recipe #51: Apple Pie Muffins  
Apple pie muffins here

So, a bit of back story. I used to be ABSOLUTELY terrified of peeling and cutting apples. The way my stepmom showed me how to didn't help at all, where we used a knife to peel. One of my housemates gave me her apples and I'm also not really a fan of just eating them, I need to cut and peel them first. This time I cut and cored the apples first, then used a vegetable peeler. This housemate then asked if I'd make some apple muffins, so I looked up recipes which ended up being a bit complicated as I currently have no mixer and also not some of the ingredients a lot of them asked for. Then I found these!

Basically I just had to make the buttermilk, which I did by putting some lemon juice in milk and letting it sit for a couple minutes. Other than that, had everything! I was distracted to I accidentally put the dry ingredients directly in the wet ones instead of stirring them separately and then combining, but I figured it was no big deal. I also didn't have a sifter, so couldn't sift the flour etc. I also added a bit of baking powder as well as baking soda. Also, the topping wasn't coming out crumbly, more kind of like batter, so I ended up just spooning some on top. BUT THESE CAME OUT REALLY GOOD. My housemate even had 3 when they were just from the oven :D

And yay, I know I can use apples now! My fear of cutting them is over ;)

You know what works great? If you get an apple slicer, they have these things that you just push down over the apple. Its wonderful! And if you plan on peeling a lot of apples, I recommend getting one of those apple peeler things, you stick the apple on the one part, and crank the handle and it peels it and cores it.

If you don't have a sifter, I do but never use it except for powdered sugar, if you put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and wisk them together it does the same thing because sifting is really to combine and airate.
