"The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong." ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

Mix together egg, buttermilk, 1/2 cup melted butter, vanilla and 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar until sugar has dissolved. Pour into the flour mixture and add diced apples. Stir just until everything is blended. Spoon into the prepared muffin tin, filling the cups to the top. Stir together 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour and cinnamon.
