Apple Muffins with Praline Glaze




These muffins are incredible! They are not very sweet at all without the glaze and so very moist. So if you are looking for a simple muffin that works for a breakfast this is it! With the glaze it is decadent! Try them!!



First of all I toasted the nuts. You can use either walnuts of pecans but let's be real pecans are better! I toast them at 350 for about 10 minutes, just scattered on a cookies sheet.


For the muffins


1 Cup sour cream

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tbl vanilla

2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 cup chopped apple

1 cup chopped nuts


Mix sour cream and sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients then add them to the sour cream mixture. Fold in apples and nuts. Make sure to spray you muffin tins well. Bake at 350 for 22 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes then transfer to baking rack that has been placed over a large cookie sheet. (like the picture)


Glaze

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup dark brown sugar


heat butter and sugar together in a small pan over medium heat. Bring to boil and continue cooking for about a minute, stirring constantly. Drizzle over muffins. Let muffins completely cool then enjoy!
