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

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


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Whisk together first five ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, melted butter and vanilla; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened (batter will be stiff). Fold in apples.
  2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. For topping, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter.
  3. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 15-20 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool. Mix glaze ingredients; drizzle over tops. Yield: 1 dozen.

"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!"

"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."

"This is a family favorite. We never make the glaze. I use frozen apples if I do not have fresh."

"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."
