I think fall is my favorite time of year to bake. Apples and pumpkin are two of my favorite things and I just can’t get enough of them in the fall. I feel like baking pretty much all the time. It’s unfortunate that my family can’t survive on muffins and scones and cookies. There’s definitely a lot of that stuff around my house these days!

Am I the only one? Or is that pretty common to suddenly want to bake all the things as soon as the weather turns a little bit cooler? Maybe it’s because I can finally turn my oven on without turning my house into a sauna!

That, and the bags and bags of apples I have sitting in my freezer begging to be made into things like these apple muffins with crumb topping!

Every year my siblings give me buckets of apples from their trees. They get so many that they can’t even use them all. So I chop and core apples incessantly for a few days and end up with boatloads of apples ready to bake with in my freezer.

I was actually planning on planting an apple tree in my yard next year, but as I wrote that I started to think that maybe I shouldn’t! I already have enough apples to last me for months and I don’t even have a tree! Might have to rethink that plan….

I guess we will see how quickly we fly through them this year and then decide.

These apple muffins disappeared in less then two days though, so clearly we are going to have to make them again!

It might not be a problem using up all those apples after all.

    I just made this recipe but it doesn’t show when to add apples to the batter. I put them in after I mixed together the wet and dry. Not sure if this was the right time but they were absolutely delicious and I will definitely be making these again. Thank you for sharing!

      Whoops! So sorry about that Michele, yes I add them after mixing together the wet and dry ingredients. I will get that fixed ASAP! So glad you liked the muffins!

      Isn’t the topping the best part? I always think I should leave it off for health reasons, but then decide it’s just too good! :) Thanks Karly!
