Fall is the season of everything apple, so I decided to turn Grandma’s famous apple cobbler into Apple Cobbler Muffins so that we could disguise dessert as breakfast.
Those who know me know that I am a disaster in the kitchen. As much as I try to clean as I go, I’m the equivalent of a tornado and the sugar trail follows me. It’s a really good thing that Chris has a sweet tooth, because he never minds cleaning in exchange for baked goods. My hands are inevitably a mess as well and I have to wash them frequently when baking and cooking. I love Seventh Generation’s natural hand wash that is gentle on my skin and leaves my hands feeling soft because they use plant-based ingredients. It’s the next best thing to a manicure that I never seem to find the time for!
I did my best to attempt to limit the mess while baking these delectable apple cobbler muffins. Do you use muffin liners? The last few years I have been baking without for a few reasons – I find that liners make muffins a little crustier and I prefer really soft muffins. They never seem to be as pretty after they bake, either. The other reason I had decided to forgo liners is because they get thrown into the trash and lately, I’ve been a recycling queen. Instead, I thoroughly grease my muffin tin and scoop the batter directly into them using an ice cream scoop. The scoop keeps them consistent in size and is just right for a standard muffin tin.
For me, the best part of apple cobbler is the crumbly topping. I just love the little crunch, so I topped my apple cobbler muffins using a cookie scoop for the perfect muffin to crumble ratio.
My friend Amanda recently moved to the neighborhood next to ours, so I’m sharing a few of these muffins and my favorite Seventh Generation hand washes with her. I’m so excited to have a lifelong friend as a neighbor now as well!
