Fried Apple Cornbread Muffins (Frugal Food Thursday)

Welcome to Frugal Food Thursday!  If you have a great frugal recipe, please link up below! 

This recipe is also listed at these wonderful linkup parties - thank you to all the hosts for allowing me to link up!

Several months ago, I did a review of a Glory Foods gift basket filled with several yummy Glory Foods products.  My favorite foods from the gift basket were the Fried Apples and the Yellow Cornbread Mix.

So when I heard that Chef Bradley Livingston had created a Fried Apple Cornbread Muffins recipe for Glory Foods, I knew that I had to try it!

The recipe came together very easily - chopped fried apples, the muffin mix with eggs and milk added, some extra baking powder, and brown and white sugars mixed together for the muffin topping.  I put them in the oven, and soon they were done!

And they were delicious!  The brown sugar complemented the apples well.  And they were nice and moist, not dry like cornbread often can be.  I would definitely recommend this recipe!

Need to find Glory Foods products to try this recipe? Go to their product locator, choose the ingredients from the pull-down menu, and enter your zip code.  Hopefully you'll find these products at a store near you!  If not, you can order Glory Foods products from via their online storefront.

Here's the recipe!


1 15-oz can Glory Foods Sweet Traditions Fried Apples, drained
1 7.5-oz box Glory Foods Corn Muffin Mix
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp light brown sugar
2 tbsp white sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Put 8 muffin papers in a muffin tin and grease the muffin papers with nonstick spray.

Chop the drained Fried Apples into small chunks and place in a medium bowl.  Add the Corn Muffin Mix, egg, milk, and baking powder.  Mix all ingredients well until moistened.

Place the mixture into the muffin cups.  In a separate small bowl, mix the sugars together.  Sprinkle sugar mixture over the tops of the unbaked muffins.

Bake at 350 degrees for 350 degrees.  The sugar will form a crust over the tops of the muffins.

Makes 8 muffins.

Hi, I just stopped by to thank you for hosting your link party. I've shared my Turkish Gozleme recipe which I think would be perfect if you are saving pennies! It can be as low cost as you wish, (or as decadent, depends what you would like in the filling!). I hope you all like it. I'm off to hunt you down on FB now and take a look around :)
Thanks once again, Mary from Lovefoodies

Those apple cornbread muffins sound interest. Not a combination I would normally think about. Can't wait to try them! Thanks for hosting.
