Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper muffin cups or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • To make the crumb topping, combine the flour, sugars, cinnamon, and melted butter in a small bowl. Mix with a fork until combined and mixture is crumbly. Place the bowl in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • To make the muffins: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugars, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and allspice. If there are small brown sugar clumps, break them up with your fingers.
  • In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk until eggs are well combined with the other liquid ingredients.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and gently stir together with a spatula. Don’t over mix the batter, stir just until flour disappears. Gently fold in the apples.
  • Divide the muffin batter evenly among the muffin cups. Top each muffin evenly with crumb topping. Gently press the crumbs into the batter.
  • Bake the muffins for 18 to 20 minutes or until the muffin tops are golden and the tops are set. You can insert a toothpick into the center of a muffin and if it comes out clean, they are done.
  • Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and let the muffins cool for 5 minutes in the pan. Remove from the pan and enjoy!
