Apple cider muffins are bursting with apple flavor with fresh shredded apples and an apple cider reduction. These muffins are topped with a generous amount of brown sugar almond streusel. A perfect fall treat!
Now we are in it. We are sooooo in it. Living on the east coast fall smacks you over the head and is in your face. The vibrance of the leaves, the crispness of the air, the dreary grey skies… Yeah, sure. We have all of that in Kansas. But it just seems more intense here. Like fall was made for the northeast.
I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to freak out a little bit about how fast time goes these days. Why didn’t anyone ever tell me that this is what happens when you become an adult? I wasn’t prepared for this!
I can’t believe October is almost over. And it’s almost November! Which means it’s almost December!!!! And before we know it we will be well into January, and it will be 2015?!?!?! and I will turn 29….. (WHAT?!) Which means before I know it I will be THIRTY. Did you hear me?
I haven’t made anything pumpkin spice yet. I haven’t even eaten anything pumpkin spice yet. I will. I love it just as much as the next guy. But I’m still holding out a little longer. I guess it’s my way of trying to slow time down a bit.
Why is everyone in such a hurry to jump into the next season and move time along faster than it is already going?! Let’s ease into it.
I’m loving the apple everything right now. So I decided to make some intensely apple flavored muffins. The batter is filled with apples and enhanced with an apple cider reduction.
I also had to add a good dose of almond streusel on top. Probably about double what most recipes would call for. Too much streusel doesn’t exist in my world! Bring it!
