  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup salted butter (melted)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups gala apples peeled and diced



  1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add in the brown sugar and mostly melted butter. Mix for about 3 minutes. Then, add in your egg. Whisk everything together for about a minute.

  3. Next, pour in your milk. Beat again for about 1 minute. Then, add in your cinnamon and baking powder. Again mix for 1 minute.

  4. Finally, add in your flour ½ cup at a time. Make sure to scrape the edges of the bowl with a rubber spatula so that every thing gets incorporated. Then, pour in the apple chunks. Mix with a rubber spatula.

  5. Scoop the apple cinnamon muffin batter evenly into a prepared cupcake pan. (You can either use cupcake liners, or spray with some PAM.)

  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. (If you didn't use cupcake liners, lightly go around the edges of the pan so that the muffins will come out clean.)
