Apple Muffins

Here's a link to where I found the recipe:Apple Muffins

1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. butter, at room temperature
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar, divided
1 egg
1 c. buttermilk
2 apples, peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 450 F. In a small bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. In a large bowl, cream the butter, the white sugar and 1/4 cup of the brown sugar. Add the egg and beat until fluffy (I used a hand-held mixer for all of this until I mixed in the buttermilk, then I switched to a wooden spoon so as not to over-mix the buttermilk). Mix in the buttermilk gently. Stir in the flour mixture gently and fold in the apples. Pour the batter into 12 muffin cup liners (I greased my muffin tin with Crisco), sprinkle with 1/4 cup brown sugar and bake at 450 F for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn the oven down to 400 F and bake for another 15-20 minutes. Allow the muffins to cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
