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.
The inspiration for these muffins came from a favorite coffee cake. I wanted to put it in a form our four girls could munch while playing. For variety, I'll sometimes substitute prepared blueberry or lemon pie filling for the delectable from-scratch apple filling.
