Apple Streusel Muffins Recipe

Apple Streusel Muffins Recipe

My husband and children enjoy these tender coffee cake-like muffins as a quick breakfast or snack on the run. The drizzle of glaze makes them pretty enough for company. —Dulcy Grace, Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped peeled tart apples
  • STREUSEL TOPPING:
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter
  • GLAZE:
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine eggs, butter and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened (batter will be stiff). Fold in apples.
  • 2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter.
  • 3. Bake 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over muffins. Yield: 1 dozen.

"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."

"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."

"I made the muffins without the glaze and they were amazing. I would call them mini coffee cakes, so dense and moist from the apples. I will try them with nuts next time. I love finding new apple recipes, I am crazy for apples."

"Very good! I would make half the amount of glaze next time - it was a little excessive. Otherwise, very moist and flavorful and just the right amount of sweetness."

"I just pulled these out of the oven! They smelled wonderful while baking and tasted even better! I did not use the glaze because I wanted to freeze some of them. I would love to try the glaze next time I make these. My 5 year old picky daughter ate 2 in one sitting! They are very moist and I did not even have to use butter!"

"Just finished this recipe and Oh...My...Lord! First, the scent it leaves throughout my house is heavenly. When I tasted it, I couldn't believe how moist it was! Seriously, it tasted bakery-bought. And it wasn't over sweet, it was just right! (I made it without the glaze topping and in a regular cake pan.) I will be making this recipe again; in fact, it may be my annual Christmas cake! Five stars are not enough!"
