When I was a kid, I remember going to a local farm for the sugar run. Let me tell you, there is nothing quite like freshly created maple syrup, drizzled warm over vanilla ice cream. Hoo boy. I wish I had some right now.

I do have the syrup. Thanks to my mom, we have a hookup for Wisconsin maple syrup on the cheap. Which means I have about 2.5 quarts of maple syrup. And with all these apples in my fridge, it just made sense to make muffins. Of course.

Maple Apple Muffins - The maple in these maple apple muffins adds just enough of special flavor to make these stand out from ordinary muffins.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped apples

  • Mix together flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
