Although I love a good crisp apple on its own or in a salad, I'm not a huge fan of apple in baked goods. Apple pie, tart, or cake? Generally I'll pass.
Except that I've really been hankering for an apple orchard visit and some apple cider, which I think is making everything apple-related sound wonderful to me. These muffins are based on this recipe with a few modifications. I only had all-purpose flour on hand, and I added vinegar to soy milk for the buttermilk. In addition to the cinnamon, I added a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg and a full teaspoon of ground ginger. Not quite the same as sipping a fresh cup of cider at the local mill on a crisp Saturday morning, but a delicious taste of autumn all the same.
