“I was looking for some simple muffins to make for a church bake sale when I came across the "base recipe" for these muffins on the Dunkin Hines website. I added a few ingredients and came up with this delicious number that combines my bounty of apples, cinnamon and sugar to create a moist muffin that goes great with your morning cup of java! Cooking time is per each dozen tray of muffins. (Also, the picture is missing the cinnamon/sugar coating. I decided to add that later)”
16-20 muffins
