      Very good! I did make a few changes. I doubled it, and got 36 muffins. I didn't have any buttermilk, so substituted with 2% milk mixed with 1 TBS of lemon juice. I mixed the baking soda with the flour, along with about 1/2 tsp of baking powder (as suggested by another reviewer). I omitted the nuts, and added about 1 tsp. of cinnamon. I had WAY too much topping left... at least double what I needed. Will definately make again, but will add more cinnamon, and some nutmeg. Very yummy!

      I just finished one and they are wonderful. I grated my apple and only used raw sugar on top. Will be making these again tomorrow to use up some of the apples DH picked for me.

      These are brilliant muffins. I made it to take it to my daughter's end of school year event and it was a big hit! I doubled the recipe but forgot to count how many I got in all. I didn't have any buttermilk so I used milk and lemon juice instead, left out the nuts but added in an extra half cup of apples and as suggested by the other reviewer I added in 1 tsp of baking powder. Did I mention everyone loved it! Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe, ellie, I will be making it again today to take to my son's nursery potluck this evening!
