I’ve made these a couple different times and they have been an absolute hit - like a there-were-none-left hit. Soft and tender apples covered in a caramel glaze are the stars of this show! Haven’t tried it yet, but vanilla ice cream probably wouldn’t be a bad idea!
Stir apples, brown sugar, butter, and salt in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and syrupy, about 30 minutes. Stir in walnuts.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a muffin tin; divide apple mixture among muffin cups.
Whisk flour, brown sugar, baking powder, apple pie spice, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a small well in the center and set aside.
Combine butter, applesauce, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla extract. Pour into the well in the flour mixture. Mix until just combined; batter should be lumpy. Pour batter over apple mixture in the muffin cups.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of each muffin. Carefully flip pan onto a serving platter; serve hot.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as white bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
