And that's because I was running out of batter. This recipe only made 10 muffins.
Not a dozen. Not half a dozen. But ten.
And that, my friends, is concrete proof that I truly did just make this up. And, apparently, still need to perfect this recipe.
Which I don't mind, since gruyere and apples together are divine.
I think I'm going to go with that. Feels right.
Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 stick melted butter, 1 large egg, 1 granny smith apple and 1/3 cup shredded gruyere cheese.
In a mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix in melted and slightly cooled butter and egg. Now add in the peeled and chopped apple plus 1/4 cup of the cheese. Spoon batter into a well greased muffin pan. Sprinkle on the remaining cheese. And bake at 350 F for 15-20 minutes.
*Side note: if you are ever baking muffins or cupcakes and don't end up using all the cups in your pan, fill the empty ones with a little bit of water to help preserve them from the heat. I forget were I first learned this... it may have been Martha Stewart or possibly my Home Economics teacher...
P.S. I have noticed lately that ya'll (yeah, that's right, I typed it) sometimes have cooking/business questions for me. If you ever want to email, feel free: emma AT redvelvetart DOT com
