Dutch Apple Cheese Muffins

These muffins are just a tad more time consuming than most, but so worth the effort. I got the recipe from Cook's Country, the best cooking magazine ever [click here for more of my C's-C favorites].  The picture in the magazine was so mouthwatering I had to try them myself.

The only "extra" things you are doing with these muffins is coring, peeling, and slicing two apples, and making a yummy glaze that you brush on halfway through the baking time.  They really don't take that long, particularly if you have a corer/peeler/slicer.  I used one Pink Lady and on Jonathan apple this time around, because that's what I had in my fridge.

Arrange the apple slices on top of the thick muffin
batter, pressing gently to help them adhere
It looks pretty even before you bake it . . .
This is after it's baked for 15 minutes.  Remove the pan
and brush glaze on top of each muffin
Mmmmm . . . Glaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaze . . .
Bake till it gets all caramelly on top . . . mmmmm . . . caramelly
I had to make fancy muffins to use the totally
and beautiful muffin tier that my sister
Bonnie MADE for me!!!  It was such a thoughtful
gift and it really dressed up the table. 
Muffins + oatmeal + pretty place settings = perfect breakfast
The glaze makes the muffin liners sticky, so I put each muffin in an
extra liner so they wouldn't stick to the tier or the table.  Bonnie
also gave me a ton of cute muffin liners for my birthday . . .
you can never have too many, people.
Muffin, Undressed.
The cheddar cheese in each muffin is what puts them over the top.
You cannot go wrong with these ones.  Not only are they delicious and satisfying---they're so pretty that they put cupcakes to shame!


  1. So pretty they put cupcakes to shame . . .

  2. Becca, you are my culinary hero:) I've never been jealous of a pie until yours. Sooo... what do I have to do to convince you to do a video tutorial of your pie crust? I tried it and was so scared of over-handling it, I didn't add enough moisture:/ I am determined to reach your pie-amazingness, even if it takes me a lifetime. Keep up the posts!

    ps. These look amazing!

  3. We totally made these for a midnight snack last night—delicious. I didn't have almond extract, so I substituted some vanilla and they were still awesome. We used a granny smith and a pink lady and they were delish.

    Also, I was nervous that the glaze would make getting the muffins out of the tin difficult (we used Pam and flour rather than muffin liners), but it wasn't hard to get them out at all! We are definitely making these again, especially when it is midnight and we have too many apples and cheddar cheese on our hands!


Welcome to BexBox! I hope you enjoy using my recipe cards as much as I enjoy making them.
