Elisha’s Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Source: The Parkdale Potluck Cookbook
Date tried: August 9/16
Yield: 2 dozen
Time needed: 45 minutes

These are one of the staff-created variations on the basic muffin recipe used by Alternative Grounds, a popular fair-trade coffee roasters in Toronto. Sadly they no longer operate the restaurant where these muffins were served each morning, but the coffee is still available at various local outlets.

This is a very good muffin, moist and tasty. Good call, Elisha!
