Muffin Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 eggs (large)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups peeled and chopped tart apples (about 2 small apples)

Streusel Ingredients

  • cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp cold butter

Glaze Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tsp milk (2%) or heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp butter (unsalted, melted)
  • tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt


Muffin Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place liners in muffin tin or grease muffin tin well.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the first five dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, baking powder).
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients (eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract).
  • Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture, stirring just until combined (the batter will be stiff).
  • Fold in the peeled/chopped apples.
  • Spoon the muffin batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup 3/4’s of the way full.

Streusel Directions

  • Mix together brown sugar, flour, and ground cinnamon. Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut in the butter until it gets crumbly. Sprinkle the streusal topping over the muffin batter.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean. Cool about 5 minutes in muffin tin then the muffins to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.

Glaze Directions

  • Mix all glaze ingredients together. Drizzle over each muffin.
