Cinnamon Streusel Apple Muffins


Celebrate fall by enjoying these moist apple muffins!  Muffins are a quick and easy breakfast!  These Cinnamon Streusel Apple Muffins use fresh apples which are abundant this time of year.  I double this recipe and freeze half.  (back in the old days, when we had 7 kids at home, we ate a double recipe of this... ahhh the memories)  The apple in these muffins keeps them really moist.

Cinnamon Streusel Apple Muffins

2 C. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 C. sugar
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 C. butter or margarine, melted
1 C. apple, peeled, cored, and chopped

Heat oven to 400.  Grease 12 muffin cups.  Stir together all dry ingredients in one bowl, mix together the milk, egg & butter in another bowl.  Stir the two together.  Fold in chopped apples.  Spoon batter into muffin cups and top with the following streusel topping:
