This is absolutely my favorite time of year.
Y’know, everyone says that, but they don’t mean it. They love tanning, making frozen margaritas, and splashing around in pools during the summer.
I, on the other hand, loathe summer.
But, fall! Oh fall. My heart skips a beat; with fresh apple cider, color changing leaves, busting out your favorite coat and finding old movie ticket stubs in the pockets.
Also, it’s the time of year where warm foods are more comforting. Like hot chocolate, homemade soups, and baked goods.
So, this is my ma’s recipe for zucchini bread, which I’ve turned into muffins, and added a funny amount of apples. What? I like apples.
This recipe makes about 22 cupcake-sized muffins. (Will yield more or less depending on how big your muffins are.)
If you like nuts, feel free to add them. You’d want to mix them in when you add the apples. I’m not a nutty person though (although I’m sure many would beg to differ).
These will last about 3 days. As with all baked goods, they taste best the day they are made.
