amaretto apple muffins





 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I fnd these amaretto apple  muffins in My recipes and  really are delicious I love especially the glaze on the top.
 
The amaretto adds an even more distinct almond  flavor but if you dont have it, you can use almond extract instead.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Ingredients 
 
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup less fat cream cheese softened
1/4 cup butter softened
2 tablespoon amaretto (almond flavored liqueur)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 karge egg
1/2 cup aour cream
2 tablespoon of milk
1  cup finely chopped apple
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
 
Streusel
 
 
2 tablespoon all purpose flour
2 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoon butter chilled
2 tablespoon sliced almonds
 
Glaze
 
1 cup powdered sugar
4 teaspoons reduced fat milk
 
Method
 
Preheat oven to 180°c
Place muffin cup liners in 12 muffin cups
In a bowl combine all purpose flour ( 1 1/2 cups) add baking powder  salt and baking soda stirring with a whisk.
Combine granulated sugar cream cheese and 1/4 cup butter in a large bowl  beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended.
Combine sour cream  and 2 tablespoon of milk in a small bowl
stir with a whisk untill well blended. Combine apple and 1 tablespoon flour in a small bowl  toss well.
 
Add flour mixture and sour cream mixture alternately to sugar mixture begining and ending with flour mixture.
Beat just until blended. Fold in apple mixture. Divide batter evenly among muffins cups.
To make the streusel combine 2 tablespoon flour brown sugar  and ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
Cut in 2 tablespoons butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal: stir in almonds Sprinkle streusel evenly over muffins..
Bake at 180° for 27 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes on a wire rack and remove the muffins from the pan.
 
To prepare glaze, combine powdered sugar and 4 teaspoons milk in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle glaze over cupcakes.
If you dont have amaretto you can use almond extract instead (1/2 teaspoon)

Muffins con manzana y amaretto




 
 
 
 
 







 Estos muffins me encantaron porque son como diferentes por el amaretto y el glacé quedan super buenos y como llevan manzanas se conservan húmedos.
Los adapté de una receta de My recipes un sitio americano en que ya he  probado recetas.
