One of my favorite fruit which I often use in baking is apple. And I often find them great with sugar and cinnamon. There are a lot of uses for apple in baking and I think I haven’t maximize their uses yet.
As to what kind of apple to use in baking, Eatingwell.com has an article discussing this topic. According to eatingwell, mcIntosh are great for pies and sauce. Granny Smith is also good if you want something sharp and tart in your pies. Red delicious is not advisable for pie as they lack the tartness a delicious pie needs. Honeycrisps are better eaten as is as they are sweet but they are also good for baking.
You want my thoughts, I actually do not know. I use whatever apple is available in our kitchen. I don’t even know nor bother to get the type of apple we buy. I like to eat Fuji apple and I usually use them in baking too. Fuji apple is probable one of the apples I know the name of, another is the granny smith which I prefer using it in baking and in my smoothies rather than eating them as is.
Anyway, here is another apple muffin recipe shared to me by my good friend Tin Bernardino. This is one way of making use of those apples you don’t like to eat.
