These muffins are made with two kinds of dried fruit and make a wonderful breakfast or snack muffin. I don't like long names for recipes, and the name of these muffins was originally Apricot and Apple Muffins with Almond Topping. I have shortened the name to simply Triple A Muffins in reference to the apples, apricots, and almonds. My recipe is adapted from the Perfect Cookies, Cupcakes, and Muffins cookbook.
Triple A Muffins
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
1/2 cup chopped dried apple
1/2 cup orange juice
2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup Demerara sugar
Bake muffins for 15 - 20 minutes.
So whether you call these "Apricot and Apple Muffins with Almond Topping" or just "Triple A Muffins", these are seriously good muffins, no matter what their name.
