  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a12 cup muffin pan or line with papers and spray the papers with non stick.(apples like to stick to papers).
  • 2
    Mix together the butter, white sugar and 1/4 cup of the brown sugar. Beat until light and fluffy. (the creaming method). Add the eggs and mix well. Gently mix in the buttermilk or yogurt.
  • 3
    Whisk the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add to the batter. Do not over mix. Add the chopped apples. Make sure they are chopped pretty small, like the size of a peanut. If the batter seems too thick, add a tablespoon of milk to it, mixing a bit more. It will be pretty thick.

    Divide the batter between the 12 muffin cups and sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of brown sugar on top. (if you have extra batter, you can bake it in a small oven proof bowl or cup or another muffin pan.) Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with only moist crumbs and the top of the muffin is springy when you touch it with your finger. Remove from the oven andc ool 5 minutes in the pan. Then put them on a cooling rack to finish cooling.
