Recipe - Apple Cider Muffins

November 11, 2013

This is by far the most moist muffin recipe I've ever made.  These are, in one word, delicious.  They are great warm or cold - doesn't matter, they are yummy.  Around this time of the year I use apple cider for any number of things - Cider Glazed Pork, Chicken in Creamy Cider Sauce, and I boil down cider to use in apple pies.  I always have a bit leftover and this is the PERFECT way to use it up.  I haven't tried freezing these {they don't last that long} but I would think they would freeze very well.

Makes 18 muffins

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup apple cider
3/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 medium baking apples, peeled, cored and the flesh grated

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Line 2 muffin tins with 18 cupcake liners, or lightly grease them.

In a large bowl, mix together the sugars, vegetable oil and eggs with an electric mixer.  Add all the additional ingredients and mix, just until combined.

Pour into muffin cups, filling about 3/4 full.  Bake 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Remove from the oven to a cooling rack to cool to room temperature.

Part of this tip is getting into the habit of eating in season because in season veggies are typically much cheaper than out of season. The other thing to consider is thinking about ingredients you and your family enjoy that are (either seasonally or year-round) cheaper and incorporating them more into your meals. For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...

February 11, 2018

If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Food lifestyle.  Our grocery budget is $100.00/week for 2 adults.  Often I make 2 different meals because I am primarily plant-based and my husband is not.  Most of what we eat is made from scratch and any boxed, canned and/or frozen products follow the Real Food...
