First, wash two medium-sized apples. Peel them. Slice in quarters. Remove the seeds. Cut one apple into thin slices, the other apple into small chunks.

Mix together the dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, you will mix the liquid ingredients. This recipe calls for buttermilk, but since I don’t use buttermilk that often (whenever I buy it, it goes bad!) I like to buy this powdered buttermilk. It recommends mixing the powdered milk with dry ingredients, but I like to mix the powder and water together so that I can easily combine the liquid ingredients.

Now it’s time to fill the muffin cups. Place one scoop of the batter into the cup. Add a layer of apple slices. Place another scoop of batter and another layer of apple slices. That’s it.
