Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

These Muffins are Sinful, Moist and Fluffy. They are so soft that they melt in the mouth like a cotton candy. These Muffins are the best I have made so far. I ❤ These.

Hello Lovely Readers,

It has been more than a week that September has started. I haven’t made any new post so far. I really feel sad about it. Not blogging for more than a week is more like a nightmare for any blogger. I am going thorough a Root Treatment for my tooth which has just kept me away from my favorite thing. I hate going to the Dentist. Do you feel the same?Well it is much more better now. I just have a few sittings left. I am hoping for the best.

August is over. And I am so excited about September. Will be meeting my Sister soon…Gawd I miss her soo much. August was an amazing month. I received soo much appreciation from all you readers. The Cheesy Quesadillas with Spicy Salsa and my Apple Pie were a huge hit. I am still getting alot of messages for these. My timetable for September is quite exotic. I have planned new things. I hope they are executed well…So Stay Tuned…There is alot more coming on the blog.

P.S- Stay Tuned!! Lots of surprises await you this month.


These muffins are really basic. There aren’t any fancy ingredients and the best part about these is that they are quite adjustable when it come to flavors. By that I mean is, If you do not like the flavors of Apple and Cinnamon you can very well change it. Or just keep it simple. Trust me these muffins are heaven on earth even when you eat them without any flavor. They are extremely moist and fluffy. Yes, I know most of you would be surprised with the fact that although they do not have EGGS , they are really moist. I felt scared picking them. One had to be gentle with these.


Muffins are my Mom’s Favorites. She simply ❤ Muffins. Her favorite flavors are banana, chocolate and vanilla. She is motivating me to try some coffee flavor too which I would soon be trying. Nonetheless, I made these ones for her. Her eyes lit with joy whenever I bake muffins and just like a little kid she cant wait for them to cool down. She gulps in one or two without even letting them cool. She is super cute.

P.S- I ❤ my MOM. She inspires me each day.

I prefer my muffins sweet. By sweet I don’t mean they have to be extremely sweet or one cant have them, I just like them a little sweeter than normal. The choice is yours. The Apple Cinnamon Muffins are heaven on earth. The combination of Apple and Cinnamon just makes it the best thing in the world. I love the combination of Apple and Cinnamon…What About You?

They are fairy easy to put together and wont take long to bake. In order to make the muffins right it is really important that you choose the correct apples. Make sure that they are not too sour. We add a little extra sugar in the muffins in order to sweeten the apples too. Again it is entirely your choice if you want to add caramelized apples or just normal apples. You can make it simpler by just adding the plain apples so that they are not too time consuming. The apples will cook along with the batter.

Strawberryy Vanilla Chocochip Muffins

Strawberrry is my favouritee.….

When they are in season I try to incorporate them in everything i make….. If you have read “KNOW ME” Page of mine you would know how much I love strawberries 😀

IMG_20140228_221536_wm (1)

These muffins are sooo prettty lookingg….. The combination of strawberries and chocochips goes really really well and they look extremely tempting…… Before you begin lemmme warn you….They are going to finish within minutes…so make them enough……LOL..

IMG_20140228_222625_wm (1)

For me…. It was more like an experiment…so i didn’t make much… I just made a batch and within minutes they were in demand…Ooopsy :(…. So Yeah… Make lots and lots of them, Coz one just cant be enough.. My mom has been wanting to eat muffins since long….She prefers vanilla or fruit flavors over chocolate….. while my brother likes it more chocolatyyy…. so i was there not knowing what to do….. So basically I incorporated the favorite flavors of each one of us………..and there it was my “STRAWBERRY VANILLA CHOCOCHIP MUFFINS”

20140228_155113_wm (1)

They tasted heavenly and are sooo tempting….. The fragrance of vanilla while baking will just water your mouth and you just wanna eat them as soon as they are out of the oven…. but they taste amazing once chilled. As i always say, you can have your own version of it….so  you could omit strawberries and add your favorite fruit…like raspberry or blueberry or mixed…. the choice is yours…. If you dont want the flavor of the fruit then you could simply go ahead and bake a Vanilla Chocochip Muffin…. 🙂 :*

Preheat your oven at 180 degrees for about 10 to 15 mins.

  1. In a large bowl whisk butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  2. To this mixture add yogurt and vanilla extract and whisk until its light in color and smooth. You could use an electric whisker or whisk with your hand. Whisk until the batter is smooth.
  3. 20140228_130557_wm (1)
  4. Sieve flour, baking powder and baking soda and mix.
  5. Add the dry ingredients slowly in portions to the batter and mix. You could use a spatula now if its getting to messy with the whisker.
  6. Once you have combined the dry and the wet ingredients together to a smoooth paste.. add fresh strawberries and chocochips.
  7. 20140228_132018_wm (1)
  8. Just incorporate them well in the mixture. You don’t need to mix much.
  9. 20140228_132234_wm (1)
  10. IMG_20140228_183602_wm (1)
  11. Now line your muffin tray with muffin cups. Don’t worry if you do not have muffin cups… you can simply grease your muffin tray and add the batter directly.
  12. Fill in the batter and do not overfill.
  13. IMG_20140228_185307_wm (1)
  14. Bake for about 15 mins first and check if the muffins are done. If they are not, you could bake them for additional 5 mins.
  15. Lets the muffins cool down, before you enjoy eating them.

You can also serve the muffins with Ice-cream, Whipped cream , Cream Custard or Fruit syrups and Fresh fruits.

I like mine with more and more strawberries 😀 I just cant get enough of them.

You can skip vanilla extract and add strawberry extract if you want dont want the vanilla flavor incorporated.

You can decorate them simply with Icing Sugar and they are ready to go.
