Hey guys – it’s Chung-Ah from Damn Delicious, and I could not be more excited to share a recipe with you for #appleadayparty 2013! See, I’m a bit obsessed with apples, particularly Fuji apples, and I try my best to have an apple every morning. But my new favorite way to enjoy my apples is in the form of a muffin, with a glaze, of course.

This super easy muffin batter comes together so easily – just a handful of ingredients and no mixer. Plus, it’s a small batch that makes just 4 muffins, although you may want to double this – I unexpectedly ate all four the minute this came out of the oven!

Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time15 minutes
Total Time25 minutes
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Muffin
Servings: 4 muffins


  • 1/2 C all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 C milk
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 C grated apple
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract


  • 1/4 C powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp milk


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a standard muffin tin with nonstick spray; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  • In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together milk, butter, sugar, apple, egg and vanilla.
  • Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist.
  • Scoop the batter evenly into the muffin tray. Place into oven and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • To make the glaze, combine confectioners’ sugar and milk. Whisk until smooth. If the glaze is too thin, add more confectioners’ sugar as needed.
  • When the muffins are done, cool for 10 minutes and drizzle the glaze on each muffin.
  • Allow glaze to set before serving.
  • Let cool on a wire rack.

Not only do I absolutely love that this makes such a small batch, but now muffins won’t be quite the same without that amazing drizzle! Fantastic idea all around! -Rachel

    The small batch is great since I’d likely eat all four of them:-)

    For me, the best muffins have a glaze on them. I have an apple tree in the garden so my house is full of them at the moment. Might have to add this to the list of thing to bake.

    I love that this recipe only makes 4! (Although, I’d probably need to triple the batch because, come on, like I’d want to share? Pffft.)

    Can you please tell me what type of apple you used for this? They look amazing, and I’m making them tonight! Thanks. :-)

      If I hear from Chung-Ah what kind she used I will pass that information along. I always like to recommend to people who ask what to use, that they use the apple they like best because obviously you want to enjoy the taste of the apple in the muffin. :) Enjoy!

      Update – Fuji apples were used, but she recommended you use your favorite :)

    Thanks for the response Rachel! I’m actually going to try a new apple called Honeycrisp to see what I think. I’ll report back.
