Tasty Tuesday

 Mom made Apple Butter Muffins for the very first time~

The recipe~

We added 1/4 cup of dried cranberries to the batter also.


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the apple butter, cinnamon and cloves.
  • Whisk in the water, then oil, then brown sugar, then the eggs (not all together). Mix until smooth.
  • Sift together (important so you don't get white lumps in your dark bread), flour, baking soda and salt. Then combine with the apple butter mixture and mix until smooth.
  • Pour into a greased 9-inch loaf pan or 3 to 4 mini-loaf pans.
  • Bake at 350F for 65-70 minutes for the 9-inch pan or 45-50 minutes for the mini-loaves.
  • Let stand for 10-15 minutes to cool slightly before removing from the pans and letting cool completely on a wire rack.
Our muffins took about 35 minutes to bake.

  13. Java Bean: "Hmm, how does one get a taste tester job? Is there a certification process? Is there a test? I hope there's a test. I would take it again and again and again ..."

  14. WOW! This sound like a great recipe! Mom will be making Apple Butter inthe next couple of weeks. Because of the late spring, the Okanagan Apples are 2 weeks behind and Mom has not started canning with them yet. Mom always makes apple butter and this will be a fabulishious recipe! And the dried cranberries are a wonderful addition! Thanks guys! Purrs Marv
