  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups.
  2. In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup sugar, eggs, butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, and milk. Mix the creamed ingredients into the flour mixture until evenly moist. Fold in the apples. Spoon into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Mix the 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the tops of the muffin batter.
  4. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool 1 to 2 minutes before turning out onto wire racks to cool completely.

These muffins were yummy! The only thing that kept it from having that 5th star was that I was expecting more lemon flavor. I'll probably add more than the recipe calls for next time to meet my ...

These turned out so pretty and fluffy! I used whole wheat white flour and buttermilk. I didn't bother to lighten the recipe this time because just by looking at them, I knew they'd be good and.....
