Apple Spice Cake Muffins

The plan is to make the marionberry swirl cupcakes for TinyHands’s graduation party. But we’ve only got a half-pint of marionberry preserves left. I had to come up with something else for tonight! My picture could be better & I got pretty lazy cutting out my parchment liners, but they tasted great!

Apple Spice Cake Muffins

  • 6 chicken eggs or 5 duck eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup + 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (or to taste)
  • 1 cup apple butter
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice


  1. Beat eggs, salt, and vanilla until doubled in size and forming soft peaks.
  2. Add honey, ghee, and coconut milk and beat until well incorporated.
  3. With mixer running on its lowest setting, add coconut flour and cinnamon a spoonful at a time until all is incorporated.
  4. Beat for another few minutes, just to make sure there are no chunks of coconut flour.
  5. Refrigerate batter for at least 1 hour or up to 24.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. Stir lemon juice into apple butter and mix thoroughly.
  8. Place batter in a medium bowl. Using a butter knife, cut the apple butter into the batter using long, straight strokes of the knife. This won’t result in an obvious swirl, but it will make a nice variety of flavor throughout the muffins.
  9. Bake 25-35 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  • Oh Mama! These sound so good! You know- you just got me thinking, I eliminated eggs about a year ago due to a sensitivity and I havent been able to add them back in yet, but I have never tried duck eggs! I wonder if I would have the same reaction??? Thanks for planting that seed because I sure miss eggs. Plus, its so hard to make any GF breads, most of them are mostly eggs! 🙂

    • I know what you mean! I had a period of a few months where I didn’t do eggs, either. It turns out I was fine with duck eggs and fine with eggs that did not have corn or soy in the hens’ feed.

      If your sensitivity is not life threatening, it might be worth giving the duck eggs or eggs from hens with different feed a try!
