White Wine Apple Muffins

I craved for some muffins the other day, so I made these cinnamon muffins with apples cooked in white wine. ?Apples always go well with cinnamon, and cooking them with white wine just gives the muffins more layers of flavor. These muffins will be a wonderful breakfast option to kick off your mornings!

Ingredients (makes 6 muffins):

White wine apple?:
  • 100g apples (I used gala)
  • 1 tbs white wine
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsb sugar
The batter?:
  • 50g butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 52g sugar
  • 60g milk/almond milk
  • 105g AP flour
  • 1 tsb baking powder
  • 1 tsb ground cinnamon


Muffins made with this recipe are slightly sweet, add more sugar if desire.


  1. Cut apples into small dices. In a small pan, combine diced apples, water and lemon juice, cook over medium heat.
  2. Add white wine once the liquid is boiling, stir once in a while.
  3. Cook until apples become tender, reduced in size and the liquid is fully absorbed. Let cool.
  4. Let the butter return to room temperature before use. The butter should be very soft. Add sugar to the butter little by little and beat with a mixer until it’s creamy, fluffy and has a yellowish-white color.
  5. Beat the egg, add it to butter in several additions. Make sure beaten egg is fully incorporated into butter before next addition.
  6. Sift dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon) into butter mixture. Combine and mix well with a spatula.
  7. Add milk/almond milk (room temperature) to the batter.
  8. Mix well everything preferably using a spatula. Mixer is okay too.
  9. Pour batter into muffin pan/cups (2/3 full), top with prepared white wine apple (slightly press down with the spoon).
  10. Bake at 170℃ for 25-35 min until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.


Wait a couple of days before enjoying these muffins! They will become more moist and flavorful afterwards.
