Caramel Apple Muffins

I’m back! It’s November 30th – which is the last day of fall, in my non-scientific opinion. I thought I’d make one last fall-inspired recipe – caramel apple muffins. I made these a few weeks ago and am just now getting around to blogging about them! They were delicious — but a bit more yummy if served warm!

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 cup milk (at least 1%)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped peeled tart apple
12 caramels, chopped

For the topping:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, spices, and salt.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, butter, and vanilla.
3. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the apples and caramels.
4. Combine all of the topping ingredients in a small bowl.
5. Fill muffin pan cups 3/4 full, and then sprinkle the topping over the batter. (Mine overflowed a bit, so I would suggest filling a bit less than 3/4 full)
6. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool in the pan 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve warm.
