November Pinterest Challenge--Maple Apple Butter Muffins

Welcome to the September Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen!

This month I chose to try this recipe for apple butter muffins and added a bit of maple flavor too.

I made apple butter for the first time this fall and while I really liked the flavor punch I wasn't all that sure how to use it.  I did make some fall Chex Mix using apple butter and a delicious pork roast using it too but I just did not know what to do with what I had left and I thought a delicious breakfast treat would be perfect!

Here's what I used to make my muffins:

2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter; melted
3/4 cup apple butter (that's all I had left!)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 milk
1 egg

I began by lining my tray with cupcake liners for easier clean up.

Then combined all the dry ingredients in my stand mixer.

Slowly I added in the wet ingredients.

Once my batter was ready I used my large scoop to fill the cupcake liners.  Then baked them at 425 for 15 minutes until a toothpick came out clean with just a few dry crumbs attached.

I set them aside to cool in the pan.

They were delicious!  And so light and airy too.

I just love these Pinterest Challenges!  They always get us to try something fun and new.

In January my boys and I made nail polish marbled mugs.
In February we tried out a new recipe for turkey & cornbread pot pie.
In March my boys worked on making a salt dough map.
In April my boys made some glittery mason jar luminaries. 
In May my oldest on and husband made a hand forged key holder
In June I made zucchini crust pizza for myself.
In July we made cheesy ranch Chex Mix
In August we made blueberry yogurt popsicles
In September we made mocha zucchini bread with dark chocolate chips
In October we made a reversible fall/winter sign for the front porch
