Buttermilk Apple Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MMers

I'm always looking for recipes which use up the rest of the buttermilk I've got in the fridge. This one fits the bill perfectly...a nice blend of flavors with the apples, nuts and cinnamon.

I just made these. This recipe was a big hit. I had some apples that were starting to go so I loaded them in the batter. I also added some raisins that were soaked in amaretto!Excellent!! I will definetly make again.
