Apple Muffins (Cake)

This blog is for crochet mostly. But I also love baking. So I decided to share with you a few of my favorite recipes.

I am not a professional baker. I am just typing these recipes the way my grandma and my mom have written them in their notebooks. I hope you like them.

The first recipe comes from one of my grandma’s friends. I made this apple cake for the first time when I was a kid. My mom used to make it a lot too. It is truly a family favorite.

The only thing I have changed is the amount of sugar. I only add 1/2 cup sugar so I can use the cake (or muffins) for breakfast. To me, they are sweet enough that way.


4 eggs

3/4 cup white sugar (I only add 1/2 cup)

1/2 cup vegetable oil

4 apples (medium size)*

2 tblsp cinnamon

2 cups flour (scoop with the measuring cup and level with a butter knife)

1 tsp baking soda

Optional: walnuts and/or dried cranberries

*You can use whatever apples you have. I have made these with just granny smith, or just fuji, golden delicious, or even a mix. The muffins always come out delicious.


  1. Heat oven to 350F and spray your muffin tin or cake pan with cooking spray.
  2. Beat eggs and sugar until white.
  3. In the meantime, grade the apples.
  4. Add the oil and graded apples.
  5. Add the cinnamon, flour, and soda and beat until well mixed.
  6. Add chopped walnuts and/or cranberries.
  7. Bake at 350F until a toothpick comes out clean. If you are making muffins, it takes about 15 minutes to bake.

NOTE: I have only made this recipe the way I have written it here. I don’t know if you can substitute the oil for something else, or the flour, etc. You can try different substitutions if you’d like, but I don’t know what would work and what wouldn’t.
