Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and white sugar, mixing until thoroughly blended.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, 1 cup of apple cider, and vegetable oil. Stir in the apple and mincemeat. Pour the mincemeat mixture into the flour mixture, and stir until just combined.
  4. Fill the lined muffin cups 3/4 full, and bake in the preheated oven until the muffins are risen and browned, and a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes.
  5. Make a glaze by stirring together the confectioners' sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, and about 1 tablespoon of apple cider, or a little more as needed to make the glaze workable. Spread the glaze on the warm muffins.

I used whole wheat flour instead of white. It wasn't until they were baking, that I realized I had forgotten the oil! It made no difference, they taste great! They are a moist, flavorful muffin. I put the frosting on some, left it off on others; I prefer these without the frosting! Thanks for the recipe!

So yummy! I made a rum glaze instead of the one included: 2 tablespoons melted butter, and 2 tablespoons rum- mix together, then add 1/2 of confectioners sugar. Stir into other 2 ingredients till well blended. I will make these again!
