Apple Muffins with Nut-Caramel Topping

Do you fancy a very moist apple muffin with a sweet, crunchy, nutty-caramel topping? Then this treat is especially for you! Don't forget the napkin while eating this muffin as the nut-caramel topping is a little bit sticky:-)

Apple Muffins with Nut-Caramel topping, 12pcs
75 grams butter
1,25 dl sugar (125ml)
1 egg
2 dl grated apple (200ml)
0,5 dl milk (50ml)
2 dl flour (200ml)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla sugar

50 grams nuts (walnut, hazelnuts, almond)
50 grams butter
1 dl brown sugar (100ml)
0,5 dl cream (50ml)

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees C.

Melt butter and let cool. Whisk butter and sugar fluffy and mix in the egg. Stir in grated apple and milk and finally mix in the flour, baking powder and vanilla sugar. Divide batter into muffin cups placed in a muffin tray and bake for about 15 minutes or until almost finished.

While the muffins are in the oven prepare the nut-caramel topping. Place all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat on a medium temperature until sugar dissolves. Bring to boil and let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes, until caramel thickens a little bit.

Pour nut-caramel mixture onto your muffins and bake another 5 minutes. Let the muffins cool before serving.
