CAPE COD APPLE MUFFINS MINUS THE MESS LOL!

muffins06

If you missed the excitement of the first attempt & the mess lol! you can read  about it here  http://nannastreasures.blogspot.com/2013/05/muffins-gone-wrong.html

the second attempt was much better after some tweaking

CAPE COD APPLE MUFFINS

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 cup oil

2 cup shredded carrots ( I used 1)

1 large apple shredded or chopped  (I used 2)

1/2 cup nuts –chopped

2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring

1/2 cup raisins

3 eggs –beaten

this recipe also called for:

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons soda

I did not add these 2 ingredients to the second batch, the salt was over powering & I think the soda was the culprit to the mess lol!

mix dry ingredients

add remaining ingredients & mix well

fill muffin tins 2/3 full

bake 20-25 minutes @ 350

apples will make a difference in the taste as well, mine weren’t the sweetest but ok, the next time I make these I will invest in  sweeter apples & maybe add a touch more cinnamon “just a touch’!

after they cooled , I wrapped them individually in saran wrap & put in a gallon zip lock baggie & froze them, just take one out  at night & place in the  fridge & your ready for breakfast!
