Reviews for Apple Streusel Muffins
"I made this recipe twice today. The recipe says it is thick, but that was an understatement, it was more like a really thick dough, so I added a little milk. It still came out very dense and mealy, more like a cornbread in my mouth. My son made it the first time, so there is a possibility he miscounted on flour, but it was still way too thick. The second time I added about 1/3 c. of sour milk in with the liquids and this time it came out very moist and fluffy, completely perfect. I also replaced the apples with frozen chopped peaches the second time and skipped the toppings since I was out of brown sugar. It was still really good. I think it makes a great basic muffin recipe. I'll definitely make this again."
"Used granny smiths, and caramel extract in the glaze. More dense than my usual muffin recipes, but we all enjoyed them."
"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!"
"Great recipe! Family loves these muffins- no need for glaze- perfect as is thanks for sharing"
"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."
"I have made these a number of times. They are very good."
"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."
"Light & full of flavor."
"These muffins came out delicious..the whole family loved them. They're a great way to get kids to eat apples. I did add pecans to a few."
"This is a family favorite. We never make the glaze. I use frozen apples if I do not have fresh."
"Great without the glaze. I used Rome apples, my favorite baking apples."
"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 made this for a group of teens and they loved it. I found it to be a bit too many step, so instead of the icing, I covered it with caramel and it was soooo delish."
"Very good. I would make again and again. Simple and delicious"
"Had some gala apples to use up so tried this recipe & my family loves them! So moist and flavorful. I followed the exact directions exept I didn't add the glaze - they are delicious w/out it! I'm sending this recipe to my whole family. Highly recommend!"
"I have already made these twice in one week! They were VERY well received, everyone loved them. The only change I made was to cut the glaze recipe in half and it was still plenty for twelve muffins. Thanks for sharing."
"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!"
"This is a really excellent muffin, moist & delicious. *****!"
"This is just about the best Apple Streusel muffin recipe I've ever made. I make these quite often for home and for bake sales at church. Everyone loves them!"
"These are absolutely delicious. The only change I made was to make a bit more of the topping....I like lots of topping! Who doesn't?!! Make these...you won't be disappointed!"
"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!"
"They're awesome! I doubled the recipes andI had to add 2 tsp ground cinnamon and 1 tsp of ground nutmeg in the batter. They're also great for breakfast on the go... and they are also good for snacks as well!! I will make some more soon!! Thanks!!"
"I made this into a bread instead of muffins and I added 1 tsp. of cinnamon into the batter...and cooked for 50 minutes. The loaf was gone in a couple hours because no one could get enough! I'm definitely making this again soon!"
"we love these...i leave off the glaze and i still think they are plenty rich and yummy. They freeze really well also!"
"These are very good !!"
