Caramelized Apple Toffee Muffins Recipe
You'll be addicted to this deliciously tender version of a classic apple muffin. One test kitchen professional said these muffins "aren't so soft they will fall apart, but they are almost cake-like in their softness." Another said the toffee bits in these muffins "create a chewy and crunchy top that can't be emulated." These muffins are so sweet and soft, your kids will think you're feeding them dessert for breakfast. Bake a batch for afternoon coffee and tea with the girls, even if they don't believe that you didn't buy them from the local bakery. Although the recipe calls for Fuji, you can use whichever apple variety you prefer. The test kitchen professionals who like Fuji apples said they stay crisp and are sweet. Some argued for golden delicious apples because they're tender and bake well, and others said honeycrisp or gala apples would work, too. A tip from the test kitchen: Don't over-work these muffins—they only need mixing until it is just combined, which helps keep them super soft.
