Apple Nut Buttermilk Cinnamon Topped Muffins
Why I Love This Recipe
These muffins are fantastic, and rise very high when baked! If you prefer a sweeter muffin add in more brown or white sugar. I have even
made these in mini loaf pans and they were great! If you like nutmeg just add in ½ teaspoon to the flour mixture if desired.
