Hello, guys! Although it's not yet Fall, I can feel the Fall vibes already. Do you love Fall? Well, I love Fall. It's one of the best times of the year for me. I genuinely feel that as the weather cools down the drama in my life calms down too! It's such a simple and easy time of the year for me. Kind of like Pre-kend. Yeah! That's a thing now. I know right!
The Fall season and fall sceneries inspired me to make something out of the seasonal produce. So, if you come over to my place during October or November, you'll find me busy making Apple and Pumpkin recipes. And not only do I use it for desserts. I love to use Apples and Pumpkins in my savory recipes as well. Whenever I make these fruity and savory recipes, people in my family really appreciate it. This not only helps change the taste but is so very healthy.
We are an Apple Loving Family. I think I have talked about this before. A delicious bowl of Apple Cobbler is all we need to make it a sweet and cozy night. Also, a tall glass of Apple Cider Slushie is our go-to Thanksgiving drink! So simple but so flavorful. This is what I love about my Fall baking. Really simple and rustic ingredients but the results are so amazing. Am I the only one who is totally in love with Ground Cinnamon and Maple Syrup? Hahaha! These two are my favorite go-to ingredient for Fall Baking. Also, Apple Cider makes for a perfect ingredient in my Fall desserts and baked goods.
Maple Glazed Apple Cider Pecan Muffins
These Apple Cider Pecan Muffins are perfect fall breakfast muffins recipe. They are not too sweet and not too sour. Just the perfect balance between the two. Also, I have used Granny Smith Apple Chunks. These are crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
The best part about these Muffins is the Maple Syrup. Besides glazing my Muffins with Maple on top after they were done, I have also used about 2 tablespoons of Maple Syrup while making the Muffin batter. This gives these Apple Cider Pecan Muffins a Fall-ish taste, moist, and so sweet.
Also, I have used Brown Sugar for my Muffins. Dark Brown Sugar adds moisture to the Muffins which is so perfect.
Lets talk Taste
These Apple Cider Pecan Muffins glazed with Maple Syrup are sweet on the outside and chewy and moist on the inside. They have a nutty bite to them because of the Pecan Nuts, which really improves the taste and texture of these Muffins.
Also, there is that deep sweetness of Maple syrup, which is felt in every bite because of its heavy use - both in the glaze and in the Muffin Batter.
The best part is that these are Eggless Muffins and yet they are so soft, chewy, and spongy.
I love the Apple Chunks in these Muffins. Provide a wonderful bite to these Muffins. The Apples after getting baked have shrunk in size and are almost tasting like Raisins.
