These were awesome muffins. I meant to take a picture of a muffin on a plate but we dug right in and before I knew it, they were gone and no picture on a plate.
I was tempted to try these with whole wheat flour. I was making them for the kids and was afraid they wouldn't like them as much so I wimped out and just used the regular flour. Next time.
The apple was really good in this, I think I would up it to an apple and 1/2 or make sure to use a very large apple next time. I got this recipe from Holy Cannoli Recipes but just subbed apple juice for the apple cider.

Apple Cheddar Muffins
Adapted from Holy Cannoli Recipes
1 - 2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup corn meal
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese + 2 tbsp. cheddar cheese
1 large apple, peeled and diced
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup apple juice
1/2 cup applesauce
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Stir together the flour, corn meal, baking powder, cheddar cheese, salt and sugar in a large bowl. In a small bowl, beat egg with fork. Stir in milk, juice, diced apple and apple sauce. Pour all at once in dry mixture. Mix quickly and lightly with a fork until moistened, but no not beat. The batter will be lumpy. Pour the batter into paper lined muffin pan cups. Sprinkle the top with 2 tbsp. cheese. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. I got 17 muffins.
