  • 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.
