Apple Donut Muffins

My kids loved these muffins, with delicious little bites of apple throughout and a cinnamon donut style topping the kids had a few of the mini muffins while warm and they said they taste very much like donuts!!  This recipe made 12 regular muffins plus 12 mini muffin, which I love as I can add some into the freezer for lunchbox snacks.
