Apple Muffins

1 Comment

I have some apples that are really past their prime so I was scrounging around for a muffin recipe this morning and came across this one.  It was originally called apple strudel muffins but it tastes nothing like apple strudel so I changed the name to plain old apple muffins.  They are very good and don’t taste as sweet as some muffins.   DH really likes them and since he’s the only one who eats them, he better like them.  I did take a bite just to taste ~ I’m not THAT good at not eating sweets.

Apple Muffins

Muffins:
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 tsps vanilla
1 1/2 cups diced apples

Streusel:
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp flour
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 375º. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan.

In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, and eggs until smooth. Mix in the vanilla. Add the apples, stirring until incorporated. Gradually blend in the flour mixture and mix until just blended. Do not over mix.

Spoon the muffin mixture into the greased muffin pan. I use a large ice bream scoop to get same sized muffins.

In a small bowl, mix the streusel ingredients together except the butter. Cut in the butter until the mixture is like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the tops of the muffins in the pan.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.

Let the muffins cool in the pans for 5 minutes before removing. Cool them on a wire rack.

Makes 12 muffins.
