♥ Caramel Apple Muffins
























Oh what a wonderful muffin...with apples, cinnamon, pecans, caramel....Wow!  I made these this morning and my house still smells incredible!  They were so good hot out of the oven with a steaming hot cup of coffee! 

Caramel Apple Muffins

For the Streusel Topping:

2 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
4 Tablespoons Rolled Oats
1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans
2 Tablespoons All-purpose Flour
½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon

Filling
3 Tablespoons butter, room temp
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup of toasted pecan, chopped fine
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

1/2 cup sliced apples

Muffins
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Toast your pecans in a skillet on on a baking sheet in the oven for about 10 minutes. Remove and set aside. Increase your oven temperature to 400°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake papers and spray lightly with cooking spray. (I made jumbo muffins). 


























Prepare the topping by mixing the ingredients together until crumbly. Set aside. Prepare the filling by mixing the ingredients together. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, milk, and eggs. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the dry mixture to the liquid, stirring just until combined.

Divide half the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Drop 2-3 teaspoons cinnamon filling onto each muffin, and some sliced apples and then top with the remaining batter. Sprinkle with topping, pressing it in lightly.

Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, or until they're golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and wait 5 minutes before transferring them from the pan to a rack to cool.




























Browned Butter Icing:

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup confectioners' sugar

In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Cook 6 to 8 minutes, or until butter is lightly browned. Whisk in confectioners' sugar until smooth.
