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
Meet the Cook: This recipe dates back to when our two girls - now 15 and 12 - were in preschool and it was my turn to bring a snack for the class. My husband especially asks for the muffins in winter.
Crafts and reading are my hobbies.

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.

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.

Waking up to the smell of apple muffins will start your family’s day off right. Cream cheese filling makes them moist and tender, and oats and nuts in the topping add crunch.—Connie Boll, Chilton, Wisconsin
This recipe makes a light tasty muffin that stays moist. They're flavorful whether served plain, with butter and jam or dipped in cinnamon-sugar right out of the oven.

I teach quick-bread making for 4-H, and I'm always on the lookout for good new recipes. My sister-in-law shared this recipe with me for a slightly different kind of muffin. With apples and coconut, they are moist, chewy and tasty.
