Apple Crumble Muffins – Delishar

I love baked apples. They turn into this warm, soft, and sweet gooey goodness that melts in your mouth. Whenever there’s apples, there need to be cinnamon. It should be illegal to separate the both of them. I made these lovely spiced apple muffins for the people that works hard at the foot reflexology place that I frequent.

Just before I packed them into cupcake boxes to deliver it to them, I added a little something special. I had a jar of salted caramel sauce laying around in the fridge and knew that it’d be such a great combination to these delicious muffins. So I drizzled some salted caramel on top of the crumbles before packing it. 

Apple Crumble Muffins

These muffins were a hit with the masseuses! They loved the salted caramel with the sweet decadent crumbles, moist vanilla muffin, and was pleasantly surprised when they bit into the caramelised baked apples! I’m so glad that these muffins were able to put a smile on their faces. And I’m sure it would put a smile to yours or your love ones too.

However, kitchenware can be pretty personal to each and everyone of us. We all prefer one over another, so what better way than to let you pick something you need or want. 🙂 

Together with this giveaway, I’m also sharing with you an awesome bake! Another easy, mixer free muffin recipe that you can make in 30 minutes! Well, to be honest, this is takes a slight bit more work because of the crumble topping. However it is totally worth that couple more minutes of effort. I really enjoy the contrast between the soft fluffy muffin and the crunchy crumbly toppings. The buttery and sweet crumbles complimented the bittersweet decadent muffin so beautifully. And the melted chocolate chips in each muffin… Mmmm delish!
