A nice muffin to enjoy with coffee. Even better with a touch of butter melting in the middle! If you don't have buttermilk, you can substitute by mixing 1 cup milk with 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice. Let sit for 5 minutes then stir. Recipe from Petak's New York City. (Carry-out Cuisine)
- In a large bowl, sift the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon together. Mix in the chopped apple.
- In a small bowl, beat together the egg, buttermilk, and vanilla. Stir in the melted butter.
- Add these wet ingredients to the sifted mixture. Mix only until combined; if you overmix, the muffins will be tough.
- Fill greased muffin tins two-thirds full and bake the muffins 25 to 30 minutes in a 375 oven.
