This week's French Fridays with Dorie recipe is for an apple cake. I decided to go with apple muffins instead, since we are a muffin-loving household. I don't think this recipe was supposed to be made into muffin form. The batter was packed with apples which made it a little too moist and delicate so I had to tweak the batter as I went to make it sturdy enough for the muffin tins.
Although they don't have a high-domed top, they rose nicely and baked up with a flat-ish, wide, slightly crispy top, just the way I like them. I used a little whole wheat flour and crushed up cereal (from the bottom of the box) but you could hardly notice it. I like throwing in a handful of All Bran cereal to most of the muffins I make - for a little added more fibre. Overall, they were pretty good, but next time I will stick to the cake version.
