Apple Streusel Muffins

This recipe is in my cookbook “The B & B Cookbook” (order from Amazon or your local library) and it is truly a great morning ‘waker-upper’.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1  1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1  1/2 cups chopped, peeled Granny Smith apples

In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add the sugar and stir to combine.

In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, butter, vanilla and stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened (batter will be stiff). Fold in the chopped apples.

Grease muffin tins and fill them 3/4 full.

Streusel Topping

1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar

1 tbsp. flour

1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tbsp. cold butter

Combine the ingredients and cut in the butter until very crumbly.   Sprinkle evenly over all the muffins and gently press to adhere.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes. Check with a toothpick and if it comes out clean…done

Cool for five minutes before removing to a rack. One more thing….


1  1/2 cups sifted icing sugar

1-2 tbsp. cream (not milk)

1 tsp. melted butter

1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract

pinch of salt

Mix together until combined and smooth. Drizzle over the muffins. Need I say – OMG these are good.

Coffee any one?
