Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 18 muffin cups with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Set aside.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together until fluffy.
Beat in eggs one at a time.
Stir together the buttermilk, apple butter, applesauce, and oil.
Add flour mixture to butter mixture, alternating with apple butter mixture. Mix well after each addition.
Fill muffin cups 3/4 of the way. Bake for 20 to 24 minutes or until they feel firm when you gently press on the top.
