If you like pumpkin, you'll love these moist muffins from Mary Ann Taylor of Rockwell, Iowa. With an appealing streusel topping and tender apple bits throughout, they make a great accompaniment to a harvest meal or a handy breakfast on the run.
Tucked into the middle of each moist muffin is a tasty surprise - in the shape of a cube of cream cheese! "The simple filling adds loads of creamy flavor," reveals Denise Nebel of Wayland, Iowa. "The streusel topping is nicely crunchy."
What a pleasure it is to set out a basket of these rhubarb muffins...although the basket doesn't stay full for very long! I have six children and two grandsons, so I do a lot of baking. The snacks are based on a coffee cake recipe.
I was looking for something warm to make for my daughter before school on a rainy morning. So I jazzed up a boxed muffin mix with a chopped apple, walnuts, brown sugar and a fast-to-fix vanilla glaze. The tasty results really hit the spot.
