Apple-y Muffins

So I've started working at school in the criminology department office - copying and scanning and doing generally boring but easy stuff. Sometimes don't have anything to do but I do homework, etc. when that happens. But I have free weekends! To show my thanks, I made them muffins, and they were great but I made them late at night and was very worried if they would taste alright. But, they were fine so I made them again this morning and photographed the process so you can make your own delicious apple muffins!

I got the recipe from here, and even though it explains that the batter will be thick, I still was surprised with how thick!

Apple Muffins

Cream together:
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup oil
1 Tablespoon vanilla

Sift: ( She didn't sift and neither did I and they turned out great )
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 cups peeled, cored, diced apples (around 3 apples)
Brown sugar for topping (around 1/2 cup)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Add dry ingredients (did this by adding all but the flour them mixing, then adding the flour a cup at a time) to creamed mixture. The batter will be very thick. Add the diced apples.

Butter & flour (just sprayed, didn't flour) muffin tins or use paper liners. Fill muffin tins almost to the top about 3/4 of the way full. Sprinkle with brown sugar.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Makes 18-24 muffins.

This is the batter right before the diced apples:

It looks like cookie batter, but it loosens a little bit after the apples.

(I had scooped out most of the muffins by then)

And they have tons of apples in them too, it seems like a lot but they are very apple-y! (That picture is pre-brown sugar sprinkles!)
