Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping

The leaves have changed colors and are falling off the trees, there’s a chill in the air, and I’ve begun to accessorize every outfit with a scarf.  Yep, it’s fall, all right.  And the best part of fall? The produce!  Pumpkins, squash, sweet potatoes, and my favorite – apples! These apple muffins are delicious.  They are moist, sweet and have the perfect density.  I added a streusel topping to the recipe I found and they turned out wonderful!

Apple Muffins (from The Girl Who Ate Everything)

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 apples, peeled, cored and diced
  1. Grease a muffin pan or line with paper liners.
  2. In a small bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon with a whisk.
  3. In a larger bowl, cream the sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla together until smooth.
  4. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. The batter will be very thick.
  5. Add the diced apples and mix until incorporated.
  6. Fill paper liners almost to the top, about 3/4 of the way full.
  7. Sprinkle with streusel topping (recipe below).
  8. Bake at 350 for 18-22 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.  It made about 20 muffins.

  3. Sprinkle over the batter
