Cinnamon Sugar Apple Muffins



On Sunday, the temperature dropped and I regretted storing my winter coat. The wind picked up, and I decided to stay put for the afternoon and whip up a batch of muffins. An apple studded, soft cake with a crunchy topping, perfect partner with a cup of coffee on a chilly spring day. 

  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk (Or 1 tablespoon white vinegar and fill with milk to the one cup measure line, let sit for 5 minutes.)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped apple
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  1. Preheat oven to 325º. Line 2 muffin pans with 18 paper liners, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk sugar, oil, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla together.
  3. Add flour, and baking soda, stir until combined, then fold in chopped apples. Divide batter among muffin cups.
  4. In a small bowl, mix sugar, cinnamon, and butter with a fork. Sprinkle approximately 1 teaspoon of mixture over muffin tops. Lightly press down. Bake for 20 minutes, testing with a toothpick. Let cool on a wire rack.
