Servings: 12 Muffins
- 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter room temperature
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 large Egg
- 1 cup Buttermilk
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1 tablespoon Cinnamon
- 2 Apples peeled and cored
Preheat the oven to 375 ℉ and grease a 12-cup muffin pan with oil or line with paper baking cups.
Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a handheld mixer beat the butter, granulated sugar, and 1/4-cup of the brown sugar together until fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Add the egg and continue to mix until combined. Scrape down the sides using a spatula and slowly pour the buttermilk into the mixture, continuing to stir until fully mixed.
In a small bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add to the wet ingredients and fully mix. Gently fold in the chopped apples.
Divide the batter into the prepared baking tin and sprinkle the remaining brown sugar on top of the muffins. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes clean. Let muffins rest in pan for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
