The Best of Bridge: Apple Cheddar Muffins

I love the weekend.  It’s a lazy day for me on the couch watching the Food Network and reading through my cookbooks for inspiration for meal planning and getting snacks made for the kid’s lunches.  One of my go-to cookbooks is Best of Bridge.  I love their books because it’s a Canadian classic and it’s nostalgic for me as a lot of my mom’s recipes were used from Best of Bridge. Crater cake? OMG, the best!  I loved that when I was a kid.  It’s so good and I think I need to make that again! 
So The Best of Bridge has a book called The Best of the Best. It’s great!   I came across an Apple Cheddar muffin recipe and I thought it would be great to make for the kids.  It’s been a hit!  Find the recipe below and give ’em a try.  I love them reheated and I was short on apple juice so I used apple cider instead and it was lovely.  I used organic Ambrosia apples, so good!


Cheddar Apple Muffins

  • 3 cups Flour
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 cups Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup Apple Juice
  • 1/2 cup Butter (melted)
  • 2 cups Peeled, finely chopped apples
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.  Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. 

    Mix in cheese and beat eggs in a medium bowl.  Add apple juice, stir in butter and apples.  

    Add all at once to flour mixture, stir just until all moistened. 

    Fill greased muffin tins.  Bake for 25-30 minutes.  Makes 2 dozen.
