  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cloves

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/4 cups chopped apples, peeled and cored (I used honeycrisp apples)

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

    • I used the mini bundt pan tin which is a little larger than the muffin cup tin. If you are nervous about it being overcooked, reduce the cooking time and check it. If the toothpick inserted comes out clean and they are set, you will be fine. If it needs more cooking time, then continue on for a few more minutes. Best of luck!
