Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping

Hi Everyone,

This Sunday I was in the mood for muffins.  I just love a nice soft muffin to go with my morning cup of coffee.  I have a 5 pound bag of Granny Smith apples that I needed to use up.  I love to eat apples, plain but this past week I chipped my crown.  My dentist said no hard foods until I get the crown replaced.  Figures, that happened the day after I bought my apples.  I couldn’t let good apples go to waste so I am using them in recipes and the first apple recipe is my Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping.  Yum!

Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping
These muffins are light, moist and have a delicious apple flavor. I shredded my apple for this recipe so I didn’t have the chunks of apple, but if you like chunks of apples instead, you can certainly chop them up. For the topping I used a simple streusel topping which is made with sugar, flour and canola oil. It taste just like the topping of a Starbucks Blueberry Muffin. You will just love the topping.

The recipe is super easy to make. It’s basic ingredients such as butter, flour and eggs. The key to a good muffin is not over mixing the batter. I tend to do that sometimes. That is why I mixed my apples in just before adding the flour mixture. I just baked theses for 20 minutes and they were done. I think I am in love with my new muffin recipe.

Well my computer is my its last legs.  Time to back it up and upload everything to my semi-new computer.  Don’t you just hate technical stuff?  I plan on updating my blog too.  I want to find away to make my photos bigger for you to view.  I just get afraid I’ll lost my stuff.  Sigh…
