Happy Monday! Are you ready to tackle the week? I know I would rather stay in my warm bed than face the cold, but the thought of warm apple cider is enough to get me out of bed. And warm apple cider paired with hot out of the oven mulled apple cider muffins, yes please! Wait mulled means I’m boozing first thing in the morning, a little won’t hurt right. May just be the little boost I need to face the cold day.
They mufins can be as boozy as you like. I tried them brushed with bourbon for a more mulled taste and without the extra bourbon, both were wonderful especially when enjoyed warm. The apples are juicy and soft and wonderfully seasoned with cloves and all-spice. The muffin is crumbly and only faintly sweet. Warm winter spices wrap around the muffin. The cinnamon is most prominent and delicately rounded out by the nutmeg and cardmom. If you love warm mulled apple cider you will love these!
