Apple Cinnamon Muffins
Start by creaming your butter and honey.
Add your egg.
Dry ingredients up next.
Add some bran, fill cupcake liners and bake! Most muffin recipes use a 12–cup muffin pan, each cup having a capacity of about ⅓ cup. This has become a standard size for the new, non-stick muffin pans and most aluminum pans for sale. If your pan has larger or smaller cups, adjust the baking time by about five minutes more for the larger muffins, five minutes less for the smaller ones.
Soft, hearty and perfect. Try them chilled too.
