Apple Walnut Muffins
Apple Walnut Muffins (Matthew Septimus)
These muffins are best when served soon after you make them or reheated for about 5 minutes (15 minutes if frozen) in a preheated 350ºF/175ºC oven, so that the tops become crisp. (The large amount of apples can make the muffins become too moist on storage, especially if they are put in a closed container.) Using butter instead of oil adds a lovely flavor. The butter is clarified to avoid adding extra moisture to the batter, since the apples already provide just the right amount.
