Apple Muffin Sugar Sticky

You didn't see this one coming, did you!
A food post.
Well, I'm not one to ask twice about making muffins, and when I suggested it to myself yesterday you can guess the answer.

The thing was - I went outside in our very tiny half circled back yard and guess what I saw. We have appletrees. We do! :D And they had apples on and they were big and nice and red and green and I picked some.

Inside again, I thought about how to use these for some good. Hum hum. "What about Muffins?" I thought. Don't know why that came to my mind first. So, without further questions I decided on the muffins.

I pealed the apples.

I chopped them.

I put cinnamon, brown sugar and white sugar in a bowl and tossed it around.

I put it in a purple nicer shaped bowl, just so it would look better in the pictures.

I put the ingrediense for the muffins in a bowl.

--- OK OK. It's from a 1-2-3-muffins pack. :/ I didn't even make it from scratch. Oh well - I'm not a house wife, give me some rest. ;P ---

I poured water and butter into the mixture.

Spin, spin, spin!
Watch your clothes, you get stains. This is why you use an apron. .... Which I didn't. And I do have an apron WITH muffins on, from Anthropologie. It's so cute. :)
I'll wear it next time. :P

I made sure of no clods in the mixture. I hate clods (klumper).

Butter your muffin tin with a neat silicon buttery thing.

I put bits of the sugar sticky apples in the tin, and poured in mixture on top. Fill about half way up, ... and then a little more.

Be patient.

If you rush it, this is what you get:

Yes, Naan-Pizza. You don't want that when you expect muffins.

Although - they were good. :)

Almost there! Oh, that smell!

Let them rest for about a second or two.

Put cheese frosting on top and take a bite before you even manage to take a picture. :P
Oh yum.

Don't eat me!
(Do you see the sad Muffin-man in there? ;P)


I forgot to put this in, but as some of you may have noticed,
a certian Pioneer Woman has been the inspiration for this post.
Yup - gotta love her. :)

Go see her amazing website here.
And make sure you have an hour or five to spare.
