Preheat oven to 425°F and line a muffin pan with liners.
In a large bowl, mix together the butter, oil, and sugars until smooth.
Beat in eggs, one at a time.
Add the baking powder, baking soda, apple spice, salt, and vanilla.
Using a rubber spatula, alternate between stirring in the flour and buttermilk. Begin by stirring in 1 cup of flour. Add 1/2 cup of buttermilk. Add another 1 cup of flour, followed by the remaining 1/2 cup of buttermilk and stir just until combined. Finally, add the last 2/3 cups of flour until incorporated.
In a small bowl, mix together apples, apple pie spice, and granulated sugar.
Gently fold apples into muffin batter.
Divide the batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups.
Use a pastry brush to gently brush egg wash over each muffin.
Sprinkle turbinado sugar over the top of each muffin.
Bake for 15-17 minutes. Allow them to cool for 10 minutes.
Beat together all the ingredients for the glaze, then dip the top of each muffin in the glaze, allowing the extra glaze to drip back into the bowl. Let the first glaze layer harden before you dip them once more.
With pumpkin spice being all the rage this time of year, I hope you have not forgotten about apples and apple spice! Fall is a wonderful time for visiting apple orchards and choosing the perfect apple to enjoy as is or put in a variety of apple recipes, like my Caramel Apple Pecan Scones or my Spiced Apple Pancakes. These Old Fashioned Apple Muffins are worth making!
There are four parts to this Old Fashioned Apple Muffins Recipe–the muffins, the apples, the topping, and the glaze.
Unglazed Apple Muffin
I will start with the directions to make the apple muffins and save the glaze until last since you will not be putting the glaze on until the muffins have been baked. The topping, on the other hand, will go on the muffin batter BEFORE you bake them.
While the muffins are cooling, mix together all the ingredients for the glaze. Take one muffin at a time, dipping them top down into the glaze. Let the first layer of the glaze harden before you dip it in again. Old Fashioned Apple Muffins are soft and so flavorful, you may want to double the batch next time!
