Apple Cinnamon Muffin Cake

Happy Sunday! Everyone enjoying their weekend? Mine's been pretty great so far. :-)

On Sundays I like to make a little something that I can munch on throughout the week and today's recipe will be breakfast all week, I'm sure!

This recipe came from Christy @ The Girl Who Ate Everything.
Her recipe is for muffins, but I only have one 12 cup muffin pan and didn't feel like waiting for two batches to be done, so I threw the batter in a greased cake pan and voila! Muffin cake! Yummm.

Here's the good stuff:

You will need:
1.5 cups of sugar
2 eggs
1 cup of oil- canola or vegg.
1 tbs vanilla

Cream all the ingredients above together in a medium bowl.

In a large bowl, combine:
3 cups flour
1tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon (I did 2 tsp, cuz I'm like that)

Peel, Core and Chop apple- you'll need about 3 cups.
I used a giant Fiji and it was just about right.

Combine your dry and wet ingredients and then fold in your apples. Your batter will be VERY thick- it's okay, the apple will add some moisture.
Either spread in a 13x9 cake pan, or fill muffin tins 3/4 way full.
Sprinkle the top of the batter with brown sugar and some nutmeg.

Throw in a preheated 350* oven and try to be patient as your kitchen begins to smell like Hobby Lobby during Christmas-time.

I did not time mine, sorry. If you're doing muffins, it's 20-24mins. I just kept an eye on mine and removed it when I inserted a knife in the middle and it came out clean.

All golden and crispy.

Crunchy top, soft apples, mmmm. I'm going back
for another slice.

Enjoy this in your Brown Bag Lunch this week!
