Apple & Cinnamon Muffins

Apples although being healthy, are not among my favourite fruits. As a result, few of them were left in my fruit basket for long. To finish them off, I thought of an idea to transform them into baked apple in the form of muffins. As an add on, caramelized sugar topping mingled with the flavour of cinnamon enhanced the test many folds.  A must try for those who don’t like apple just like me, however equally passionate to bake 🙂

Remove the muffins from the oven and serve warm or place them on a wire rack to cool.
