The end result is a super yummy, moist muffin just packed with flavor - seriously, hold on to your hat...that much flavor.
1/2 C butter (1 stick), softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 C flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 apples - use whatever variety you'd like- peeled & grated (watch that core!)
1 large carrot, peeled & grated
zest of 1 orange
Preheat oven to 375F. Grease or line muffin pan (my batch yielded about 18 muffins).
In small bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
In a large bowl cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time until well blended. Add zest, apples, carrots & vanilla, mix well. Slowly add the flour mixture.
Pour batter into prepared muffin tins until about 3/4 the way full.
Bake 25-30 min or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Remove to wire rack to cool. And then all you have left to do is enjoy!
