Muffins are considered a quick bread that is leavened with chemical leavening agents such as baking powder. Spiced apple muffins are not your typical apple muffins because they are spiced up with ground mixed spices. You can serve it with cream cheese frosting or glace icing, or you can use any other frosting or icing that you want to use.
