I made muffins on the weekend and they were freakin’ amazing. Apple and cheddar? What’s not to love. Go and make them already!
apple cheddar yogurt muffins
3 apples, grated (I don’t bother peeling them)
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c plain or vanilla yogurt
1/2 c oil
1 1/4 c flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
pinch each of ground cardamon & nutmeg
1/2 c grated old cheddar cheese + extra for tops
1. Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients and blend well. In a second bowl, mix together the dry ingredients and the grated cheese. Add the dry to the wet and be careful to not overmix.
2. Add batter to a muffin tin lined with paper cups or grease your pan well. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. For me, this made 16 muffins but it will depend on the size of your pan. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
I’ve got apples, I’ve got cheddar, I’ve also got vanilla yoghurt…let’s rock ‘n roll!!
These A-C-Y muffins will have to wait till next Sunday as I usually do my baking on Sundays. But this Sunday I did make the Chai Pumpkin loaf you’ve posted about AND Bill’s Coconut bread also but since I only have one loaf pan I made muffins with Bill’s coconut bread instead of a loaf cake thingy…since that was my only other baking tool option on hand…both turned out fabulosa!!
p.s. I substituted coconut milk for the milk in the recipe…kaboom – a nice coconutty aroma wafted throughout the house…but not too overpowering – just perfect.
Um YUMMMMM hello I’m home tomorrow. So making these with my youngest son! He’ll love it!!!
I am not one to take orders, but this time, I will – those muffins just need to be made in my kitchen!
You know,there is nothing more to say, really. Those muffins speak for themselves and hey are speaking volumes. YUM!
Well, with these muffins you are totally forgiven for the short post, sweetie! 🙂
Aaaargh!!! First you put cheese in my rice croquettes, now this! You’re mad. Mad genius. I am sooo on to this one.
And FYI. I was inspired by your fried oatmeal thing. Delish. Then I actually looked around for sour cherry jam. Non-existent in CPH. So I bought a two liter jar of sour cherries to jam up myself. Just look what you’ve started!
These sound delicious! We’re going to a brunch this Saturday and I think I’ll give these a try.
i had to make these as soon as i saw the recipe. i have no cheddar though, so i used some pecorino pepato. because there’s pepper in the cheese i have i cut the sugar by half and threw in a bunch of crushed red chilis and some black pepper instead of the spices listed to make them more savory. they smell so good in the oven right now! i’ll have to make these the proper way next time i have some cheddar.
these tasted great, but they turned out really wet and mushy. what sized apples did you use?
joanne, looks like you are having a baking bread bonanza! i hope you like these muffins!
jenn, i hope you give these a try. they are great!
sorry, judy, i swear i’m not normally bossy!!
aimee, these are really great…i guess it’s okay to have a short post once in a while 😉
jennie you are awesome! i’d love to taste your homemade sour cherry jam!
well, thanks patricia…heehee!
susan, these are perfect for a brunch!
erin, my apples were of normal size…not too large but not too small? sorry, not much help! did you bake them long enough? maybe they might need more time in the oven. i do like your revisions to the recipe tho. sounds fab!
Looks delicious! There’s an apple cheddar muffin recipe in one of the Best of Bridge books I tried. Wasn’t a recipe I’d make again but I’ll definitely try your version!
Short and to the point – Yummm! I love that you grate the apples. So easy!
Lately my favorite snack has been a sliced apple with sharp Canadian cheddar. In muffin form? Sounds even better!
I’m so making these! What kind of apples did you use? BTW, I’ve made many of your recipes and they’ve all been good. I make your pasta e fagioli all the time now.
short post…whatever! cheese and apples, you can’t go wrong!
Keep updating please!!!!
eatme delicious, i’ve always been so curious about those ‘best of bridge’ books. i always try to look for them in thrift stores, but i don’t think people like to part with them!!
lynn, in a muffin, i think grating is preferable to chopping.
carolyn, i love that as a snack too! in my archives you’ll find a recipe for a bagel melt involving cinnamon, apple, honey and cheddar cheese. yum!
nancy, i used 1 granny smith and 2 jonamacs. i think any apples would work fine! i’m glad you’ve had success with my recipes and i hope you make this one as well!
thanks, hag 🙂
lauren, i definitely will (it’s been a crazy week!)
This looks delicious. One question: at what temperature should it be baked?
erin, thanks for catching my mistake! it’s been fixed…375 should be the correct temperature!
Hey! I made these today! Just wanted to let you know that they are pretty delicious!
Oh my. These look wonderful! I must try them.
What was meant by “old cheese” in the apple cheese muffin recipe?
Nan, haha, I guess it sounds funny – I mean old cheddar (as opposed to “mild” or “medium”). Maybe I should use “strong” as a better descriptive term!
Made this recipe for my 2.5 year old son as something he could take to daycare with him for lunch and he loved them in the taste test! So, kid approved. Also adult approved — I’ve been looking for a good *almost* savory cupcake and this works just fine. Thanks for the great recipe!
