Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 12 cup standard muffin pan and set aside.
  2. To make the brown butter, melt the butter over medium heat until it begins to sizzle and froth. As soon as the sizzling noise slows down, immediately turn the heat to low and simmer, stirring, until the froth on top begins to turn a light brown. Take the pot off the heat and set aside. Stir the butter in the pan to incorporate the froth into the rest of the butter. The residual heat from the pot will be enough to turn the butter to a light, golden brown color. It should smell like nutty caramel. Strain the butter through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl and set asi
  3. While the butter cools, sift flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon into a large bowl and stir in the brown sugar until combined. Mix in the honey and eggs, then add the cooled brown butter and stir until just mixed. Squeeze the excess moisture from the grated apples and gently fold through the batter.
  4. Divide the batter into the muffin tin and bake for 20-22 minutes until golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of one of the cakes comes out clean.
  5. Mix the ultrafine sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl or shallow plate.
  6. Immediately turn the cakes out onto a wire rack and toss through the sugar and cinnamon mixture to coat. If the cakes have cooled too much, the sugar won't stick to the outside. Let the cakes cool completely on the wire rack. These are best eaten immediately, but they'll keep for a few days sealed in an airtight container.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Store brown sugar in an air-tight container to avoid hardening. If your brown sugar still gets too hard to use, you can use one of these techniques to soften it.

  • If a recipe doesn't specify whether you should use light brown sugar or dark brown sugar, just use whatever you have on hand or prefer. The difference is that dark brown sugar has more molasses and thus a stronger flavor.

  • If you've had your baking powder for awhile, make sure it's still going to work by mixing it with a little water. If it doesn't fizz, you need to replace it.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

Green Tips

  • Apples are at the top of the so-called "dirty dozen" so be sure to buy organic apples (and applesauce, apple juice, etc.) if you are concerned about pesticide residues in your food.

  • Buying local honey from beekeepers in your area not only supports your community but helps those beekeepers protect bees! LocalHarvest can help you locate some tasty honey produced near you.
