Didn't really taste any caramel but sure loved these muffins anyway!! :) Used about 3/4 cup light brown sugar and used 4 little McIntosh apples. Also added some cinnamon chips instead of cinnamon!! Thanks Julieannie!

Great easy recipe. I used Jonathan apples - around 2 1/2 apples actually. My dough was too thick like gum so I added a little 2% milk (maybe 2 tbsp) just before I stir apples into it. The muffins/cupcakes turned out moist and nice flavor. Maybe a little too much cinnamon for me, however I brought them to my office and they were gone before lunch. Thanks!
