We are slightly obsessed with muffins aka “moon muffins” (thanks Mickey Mouse) in our home! Breakfast, after school snack, “i’m still hungry” after dinner snack are all the perfect times for a individual, flavor packed, made from scratch muffin and Buttermilk Apples Spice Muffins are hard to beat.
After a few test runs of this recipe, they kept getting better and they are finally perfected. These Buttermilk Apples Spice Muffins are super moist, thanks to the buttermilk, have the perfect of cinnamon and ginger spice and the most delicious apple crunch.
During the baking process, make sure not to over mix your batter and adding apples to the batter can be tricky. The best way to incorporate the apples is to fold (or mix) them into the dry ingredients before adding it into the butter and egg mixture. Folding the apples into the dry ingredients will ensure that all the apples get evenly distributed throughout the batter and won’t separate once they are added in.
