Apple Nut Buttermilk Cinnamon Topped Muffins

These muffins are fantastic, and rise very high when baked! If you prefer a sweeter muffin add in more brown or white sugar. I have even made these in mini loaf pans and they were great! If you like nutmeg just add in 1/2 teaspoon to the flour mixture if desired.

WONDERFUL! I didn't have two apples so I substituted 1 mashed banana for one of the apples - delicious!

Sorry. Followed directions exactly and I didn't like the texture... too mushy and stuck to the muffins wrappers even after I took them out right away. Maybe you can only do in the tins itself? They had a decent flavor, I just wasn't thrilled.

Very outstanding :P I used only 1/4 cup of brown sugar. I didn't want it too sweet and this is perfect. I used pecans instead of walnuts (that's what I had) and no raisins. Thanks Kit :) Made for 123 hit wonders.
