Apple Muffins (Nova Scotia Style)
30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
11 ingredients
12-14 servings
This is a very old recipe from the "Out of Old Nova Scotia Kitchens" cookbook, and was used in times when certain ingredients such as sugar and butter were expensive and scarce. However, these are very yummy, especially if you like something not too sweet. (You can add more sugar if you like a sweeter flavor.) The thing that makes these extra nice is the brown sugar/cinnamon topping. It almost caramelizes....mmmmmm. You can add in raisins or anything else you like. Please note these have more of a bread like texture, that's the way they're supposed to be. Enjoy!
