Apple cinnamon muffins

I rediscovered this recipe recently and have been enjoying these warm muffins for breakfast. When my children were younger, I made these a lot! Cinnamon just seems to beg for whole wheat flour. As you know, I'm not a purist when it comes to using whole wheat (I do love my French bread), but when cinnamon is involved, it just doesn't taste right to me unless you use whole wheat flour.

Mix together:
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
1/8 t. ground cloves
1/2 t. salt

1 c. buttermilk
1/4 c. honey
3 T. melted butter
1 egg

Once everything is mixed together, add:
one apple (peeled and chopped)

Fill muffin cups about half full and bake at 375 degrees F for about 15 minutes or until top of muffin springs back when touched lightly. In other words, if you poke it gently, and the muffin now has a dent in it, it's not done yet. This recipe makes a dozen muffins.

Hi Deborah,

I hope you found some hay, but if you didn't you could feed corn, corn gluten feed and or alfalfa pellets with some straw. A sheep needs 3% of their body weight so say you have a 100# ewe she would need 3# of dry matter (feed) and if necessary you could feed 1 1/2-2# of grain to stretch the hay (then she would need only 1-1 1/2# of hay.) Corn stalks could also be fed if needed. (I think corn stalks have more protein than straw.)Hopefully though you can find some hay!

Oh as far as buying hay I went to a pasture walk and the guy said that you are bringing in a lot of nitrogen. (When an animal grazes they pee out most of the nitrogen so it stays in the pasture.) You also buy in a lot of other minerals and nutrients when you buy hay. Amish farmers (at least around me)never sell hay or field crops. They would rather sell an animal as an animal is mostly water!

Good luck selling your horses!
