Yes these are good ! This is only the 3rd times I've made them and I honestly think they get better each time ☺
This is actually my own recipe based on the old oatmeal muffin recipe from the joy of cooking which by the way made horrid muffins ! ( I do love joy of cooking but the odd recipe is just blah )
I also took much of the ingredients from a recipe my Mum gave me it was from the lady whom I was named after Roxie Robertson ☺
that recipe is rhubarb cake
However these muffins are a granny original I guess ☺
Ok the #1 trick to these muffins is , make your kids oatmeal the day before lol
I actually had to make and use fresh oatmeal ! Seems like cheating ☺
So this recipe is also a real granny recipe , I actually don't measure things like the oatmeal or sour cream I just use up the leftover amounts .however based on the recipe I know the amounts for these .
so what shall I call them
Groovie Granny's Oatmeal Apple Muffins lol I'm really on granny mode lately ☺
this makes a huge recipe you can make it in 1/2 if you like
bake at 375
use muffin cups if you can but greasing muffin pans with margarine works too
1 1/2c butter
2c brown sugar
4 eggs slightly beaten
2c old oatmeal
5 1/2 - 6 c flour ( I use 1c whole wheat , 5c unbleached )
remember you can add or change spices up for your families likes & dislikes
3tsp baking soda
2c sour cream ( I've also used a bit of plain yogurt if not enough sour cream is on hand )
3-4c diced baking apples
1/3- 1/2 c brown sugar
options to add nuts such as walnuts & raisins I have fussy children so keep it down to the apples ☺
cinnamon sugar may be used to sprinkle on the tops of the muffins
1/4c sugar & 1tsp cinnamon mixed
first off dice your apples & mix with the 1/2c brown sugar & 3tsp cinnamon
set apple mix aside until needed
measure flour & spices & sift
in separate bowl cream butter and brown sugar , beat in the eggs .Now add the day old oatmeal & beat it into the butter mix .
In bowl you will add add baking soda to the sour cream .Important note , be sure you do this in a bowl as if you do it in a measuring cup the sour cream & soda will overflow the cup ☺
let the sour cream/soda mix sit 5min .
now add alternately & stir in with wooden spoon into butter mix the flour & sour cream ending with the flour .
Now get those apples and stir them into the muffin batter ☺
Fill your muffin cups & this is the time to sprinkle cinnamon sugar on the tops if you like
bake & enjoy !
