muffin makeover

Upside-down maple & apple muffins.

These are not your average apple and cinnamon muffin. The old recipe has gone out the window, been flipped upside-down and this is the spectacular result….

The muffins are filled with cinnamon, topped with slices of golden apple and drizzled with glossy maple syrup. Simply delish! 

Just by adding a little more effort to the plane jane muffin, you can easily transform them into an impressive afternoon treat or dessert. The original recipes uses pears, but apples work just as well combined with the sweet maple. And they taste even better straight from the oven oozing with warm, sticky syrup along with a pot of tea.

Take a break, do a handstand, make some muffins and watch as your world is turned upside-down when these golden babies pop out of the oven! #muffinmakeover
