Amazing Apple Muffins

Note: Amazing.  That is the only way to describe these cakey muffins.  Okay, "muffins".  They are much more like cupcakes that just happen to have apples in them, so that makes them healthy, right?  The batter turned out more like dough for me, but that might have been because I totally just mixed all the ingredients into one bowl and ignored the stepped process.  I'll try to stick closer to the recipe next time to see if it ends up more batter-y.  Sorry, no picture for now, but check out the picture on the source site if you like.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ½ cups chopped apples

Cinnamon topping-
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter

1) Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
2) Prep a 12 cup muffin pan by greasing the cups or lining them with papers.
3) In a medium bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
4) In a large bowl beat together butter, sugar and eggs until smooth. Mix in vanilla extract.
5) Stir in apples and then gradually blend in the flour mixture.
6) Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin pan.
7) To make cinnamon topping- in a small bowl mix brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until the mixture is like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the tops of the batter in the muffin pan.
8) Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
