Ingredients :

      2  cups  all-purpose flour  ( + 2 tsp for coating apples )
1 1/2  tsp  baking powder
   1/2  tsp  salt
      2  tsp  ground cinnamon  ( + 1/2 tsp for coating apples )
      2  cups  diced apples  ( about 2 red apples )
   1/2  cup  unsalted butter, room temperature  ( 1 stick/113 gm )
      1  cup  granulated sugar
      2  large  eggs
      2  tsp  pure vanilla extract
   1/2  cup  milk

For the topping :

1/2  cup  unsalted butter  -  melted
1/4  cup  granulated sugar
1/2  tsp  ground cinnamon

Method :

1.  Preheat oven to 375'F.  Spray muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray or coat well with shortening or butter and flour, making sure to discard any excess flour from the tins after coating.  (I used papercups).

2.  Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl.  Set aside.

3.  Toss together diced apples and 2 tsp of flour and 1/2 tsp cinnamon to coat apples in a separate bowl. 
Set aside.

4.  Cream together butter and sugar until lightened in colour, about 3 minutes.  Add an egg, one at a time, taking care to fully incorporate before adding the other.  Mix in vanilla extract.  Mix well.

5.  Gently fold in flour mixture, alternating with milk.  Stir until just combined.  Fold in diced apples and scoop mixture into prepared muffin tins, filling about 2/3 to 3/4 full.  Bake until a toothpick or skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

6.  Prepare topping for muffins while the muffins are baking by melting the butter and allowing to cool slightly.  Pour butter into a separate bowl sized easy for dipping tops of muffins.  Mix together granulated sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl and set aside.

7.  Once muffins have baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly in the muffin tin.  Then remove each muffin and dip first into the melted butter and then into the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Place onto a plate to finish cooling.
