Apple Molasses Muffins

The finished product

Ready for the oven

Mixing the batter

    This recipe is from the GoodHousekeeping Cookbook. I did not have all the ingredients but I decided to make them anyway. I am glad that I did they were a bit hit with Randy and I. I will definitely be making these muffins again soon.
    2 cups all purpose flour
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground allspice (did not have any)
    1/3 cup molasses
    1/4 cup milk
    4 tablespoons butter or margarine (I prefer to use butter when I bake)
    1 egg
    2 medium sized apples peeled and diced
    1/3 cup chopped walnuts (Randy didn't want any walnuts in them)
      Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease muffin tins.
      In a large bowl, mix first 5 ingredients. In a small bowl, beat molasses, milk, butter or margarine and egg until blended. Stir into flour mixture until flour is moistened.
      Batter will be lumpy. Fold in apples and walnuts. Spoon batter into cups. Bake 25 min.
      Or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Serve warm or cool on wire rack.
