whole wheat apple muffins

i think out of all the muffin recipes i've tried, this is definitely my favorite so far.

these muffins crumble in your mouth.  the buttermilk is the perfect addition (in my opinion).  yum.

whole wheat apple muffins

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick, 4 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup brown sugar, divided
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup (8 ounces) buttermilk or yogurt
2 large apples, peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped (i used 2 1/2 gala apples)
1) Preheat the oven to 450°F. Grease and flour or line with paper muffin cups 14-16 muffin cups and set aside).
2) Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, and set aside. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and add 3/4 cup of the sweetener of choice. Beat until fluffy. Add the egg and mix well; stop once to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl. Mix in the buttermilk gently. (If you over-mix, the buttermilk will cause the mixture to curdle.) Stir in the dry ingredients and fold in the apple chunks.
2) Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, sprinkling the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar on top. Bake for 10 minutes, turn the heat down to 400°F, and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool the muffins for 5 minutes in the tin, then turn them out onto a wire rack to cool completely. 
Yield: 14-16 muffins

 she said "serve warm with butter" but, i didn't think butter was necessary.  i also forgot to put the remaining 1/4 cup sugar on top.  still good ... still delicious!
