  • 2 cups
    all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons
    baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    salt, plus a pinch
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    ground nutmeg
  • 2 medium
    apples, peeled, cored, quartered, then diced
  • 1/3 cup
    chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 2 large
  • 1 cup
    Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup
    unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons
    Calvados, (optional)
  • 1/4 cup
    brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon
  1. Place cupcake liners inside a 12-cup standard muffin tin.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Whisk together sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Add diced apples and walnuts, tossing to coat. Whisk together eggs, yogurt, butter and Calvados (if using) in a small bowl. Gently fold the liquid mixture into the flour mixture until just combined. Don’t over mix or muffins will be tough. Divide batter among muffin cups.
  4. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar with cinnamon. Sprinkle a little of the mixture over the top of each muffin.
  5. Bake until muffins are brown around edges and spring back when touched, 16 to 18 minutes. Remove muffin pan to a rack to cool for about 5 minutes. Then, turn out muffins onto the wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  6. Store muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days or freeze in a plastic container for longer storage.
