Apple Muffins Recipe

I found this recipe for apple muffins  in an old Betty Crocker cookbook. They were quite tasty and quick to
make. I've been hunting for different apple related recipes since I have quite a few from the tree that I'd like to use up.
I used more cinnamon than called for, probably triple, as we like lots of cinnamon with our apples!
1 egg, 1/2 cup milk, 1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups sifted flour (I never sift)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup grated apple
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease bottom of muffin cups or use paper baking cups. Beat egg slightly with fork. Stir in milk and oil and grated apple. Sift dry ingredients together and stir in just until flour is moistened. Batter should be lumpy. Do not overmix. Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 12 medium muffins.
Topping to be sprinkled on before baking.
Mix 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup broken nuts (I omitted nuts) and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
I found these tasted even better on the second day.
