NY Apple, Walnut, Maple & Cinnamon Muffins – Perfect for the Fall

With the ubiquitous pumpkin sweeping all aside from my local Westchester County Farmers Markets through to Wholefoods, I felt it was time to remind everyone that this is also the season of the Apple here in the ‘Big Apple’ and what better way to celebrate it, than with some local Cortland Apples from New York State, with their deep red green flesh and snow white interior. To top off the fall flavors I added some Maple Syrup and it’s Muffintastic!

Almost as food obsessed as my Beagle Hound Millie, I am a keen amateur cook and consumer of fine chow with a weakness for the spices of Middle Eastern and North African cuisine and an obsession with Chu Toro, British Cheese and Single Malt Orkney Island Scotch (go figure), I slice at warp speed (scars on the fingers to prove it) and can rustle up everything from Mashed Potato to Maki in the flash of an eye!
