Do not think that love, in order to be genuine,
has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love
with out getting tired. Mother Teresa
I found this recipe in the cookbook "Our Favorite Recipes", put out by the Winnipeg Mennonite Elementary school. It was submitted by Monika Sawatsky. When I told her that I was posting the recipe, she said that it is her families favorite and I would have to agree. It is one of our favorites as well. Imagine waking up to the aroma of freshly baked apples and cinnamon with a faint scent of freshly brewed coffee in the air, birds singing in the distance. Sounds so enticing doesn't it. Well you can create this kind of morning for your family or guests. Come on join me, put the coffee on and let's get baking!
-3/4 cup sugar (I decrease it to a 1/2 cup)
-1 Tbsp. baking powder
-1 tsp. salt (do not double if you double the recipe)
-3/4 cup butter
-1 1/2 cups chopped apples (2 medium)
-2 cups raisin bran
-3 tsp. cinnamon, divided
-1 cup milk
-2 Tbsp. sugar
1- Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
2- Cut in butter with pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Reserve 1/2 cup for topping.
3- Add chopped apple ( I leave the skin on), cereal and 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Mix well.
4- Combine eggs and milk
5- Add to apple mixture
6- Stir lightly, just until moist. Batter will be lumpy.
7- Fill 12 greased muffin tins.
8- Blend reserved crumbs with remaining cinnamon and 2 tbsp. sugar.
9- Sprinkle over muffins.
