Reviews for Apple Streusel Muffins
"I made this recipe twice today. The recipe says it is thick, but that was an understatement, it was more like a really thick dough, so I added a little milk. It still came out very dense and mealy, more like a cornbread in my mouth. My son made it the first time, so there is a possibility he miscounted on flour, but it was still way too thick. The second time I added about 1/3 c. of sour milk in with the liquids and this time it came out very moist and fluffy, completely perfect. I also replaced the apples with frozen chopped peaches the second time and skipped the toppings since I was out of brown sugar. It was still really good. I think it makes a great basic muffin recipe. I'll definitely make this again."
"Used granny smiths, and caramel extract in the glaze. More dense than my usual muffin recipes, but we all enjoyed them."
"A great recipe for fall! I used gala's, which are my favorite, and left them in pretty big chunks so you could be sure to get the apple in almost every bite!"
"Great recipe! Family loves these muffins- no need for glaze- perfect as is thanks for sharing"
"These apple muffins are dense and moist - more like pound cake than a muffin. You can really taste the butter. I added 1 tsp. cinnamon to the batter and skipped the glaze. I received many compliments on these muffins."
"I have made these a number of times. They are very good."
"These are one fantastic muffin. I added 1 tsp. ground cinnamon. 1/2 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg and 1 tsp. cinnamon extract to the muffin batter-that added a nice flavor note with the apples. I didn't glaze them because I knew I would be putting some in the freezer. They were delicious even without the glaze-so nice and tender and the streusel added the perfect crunch to the top. Thank you Dulcy for sharing this wonderful recipe."
"Light & full of flavor."
"These muffins came out delicious..the whole family loved them. They're a great way to get kids to eat apples. I did add pecans to a few."
"This is a family favorite. We never make the glaze. I use frozen apples if I do not have fresh."
