Glazed Apple Streusel Muffins

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. -Elizabeth Calabrese, Yucaipa, California

    Delicious. I used two boxes of muffin mix, each 7 oz, and doubled the recipe. It made 9 muffins. I prepared the mix as directed on the package, which called for milk, maybe that's what the first reviewer missed. My family loved these and I'll be making them again.... it's a keeper!

    I added 1/2 cup milk to this recipe. Was milk left off the list of ingredients above?
