Apple Cinnamon Muffins

I have this thing with muffins for a late breakfast or early lunch, not quite brunch, because a brunch involves a bit more food. These Apple Cinnamon Muffins are my favorite to whip up soon as a craving strikes me mid-morning.

The topping is my favorite part, very buttery with a bit of crunch from the nuts. I had to make the muffins a few times before I was totally happy with the topping.

First the topping was too dry, then way too buttery and finally I decided to add just a little Flour into the mix as well, now that did the trick !

I think Apple and Cinnamon are two of the best combinations in a sweet treat and would even have some sliced Apple in my oatmeal (which I do have for breakfast now and then) sprinkled with Cinnamon Sugar and an added blob of butter.

The actual muffin part of these Apple Cinnamon Muffins are feather light, soft and bursting with the two flavors, whilst the topping adds a soft, melt-in-the-mouth, buttery piece of delight, to which the Walnuts add a tasteful crunch too.

I am so "in the mood" for these right now. The fall weather is just arriving, and I agree that apples and cinnamon (and butter) are pretty much the perfect combination of flavors. Great recipe!
