    Apple Struesel Muffins

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    2 c. flour
    1 tsp. baking soda
    tsp. salt
    c. softened butter
    1 c. sugar
    2 eggs
    1 tsp. vanilla
    2 c. peeled and diced apples
    tsp. cinnamon
    tsp. nutmeg

    Struesel Topping:
    ⅓ c. brown sugar
    1 Tbsp. flour
    tsp. ground cinnamon
    1 Tbsp. butter


    Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin (or 6-cup jumbo muffin tin) with cooking spray or use cupcake papers. Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon and set aside. In a separate large bowl, beat together butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Fold in apples. Mix your flour mix into your sugar mix slowly, and then spoon the batter into your muffin pan, filling tins about full. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon, and then cut in 1 Tbsp softened butter until it looks well-mixed and crumbly. Sprinkle over tops of muffins. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of muffin comes out clean - about 20 minutes for regular muffins, or 30 minutes for jumbo muffins. This will vary depending on the weather and altitude in your area, so be sure to check for doneness when your time is getting close, or when muffins start to smell sweet. (Overbaking will result in dry muffins, so go by the batter itself and not the timer!) Cool for at least 10 minutes before serving - you may need to gently loosen edges with a knife.
