Apple Streusel Muffins

Mmmmmuffins! To finish off my apple stash, I think I've perfected my apple muffin! I just love the addition of sour cream; it makes a nice rich and moist muffin, and really sets off the apple. Enjoy!

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup margarine
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup white sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup cooking oil
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup apples, peeled, slice and chopped

- With a fork combine topping ingredients together until crumbly.
- In another bowl, mix together dry batter ingredients, then beat in wet.
- Fold in apples.
- Place batter in greased or lined muffin tins, sprinkle with topping.
- Bake @ 400° for 20-25 minutes.
- Makes 12 muffins.

  9. Ahhhh, I was just told this morning that I'd be getting another bag or two of apples and this looks like the perfect recipe for them. Thank you!

  10. These muffins sound fabulous, love the streusel top and the addition of the sour cream. I make a apple muffin very similar and they are delish, I am sure these are just awesome!

  14. Mmmm, my own apples are still a few weeks away from being ripe. But I can't wait to start cooking with them. These look so yummy; thanks for linking up with Two for Tuesday.

  15. I too have a stash of apples and am gathering yummy recipes for them. Thanks for this one! I am now following via e-mail. Stop by for a visit to our crazy farm life at

  16. I love crumpled apple but I give this a try , I promis

  17. I have this in the oven right now, can't wait 'til it's done. I do have a question though, is it supposed to be thick? The batter and the topping are very thick, I almost couldn't get the topping on it was so thick. I will let you know how it turns out. Thanks for posting.

  18. These turned out just pretty good, they did not have any type of apple flavor at all, maybe it was the type of apples I used. The topping is the best. Probably won't make again.

  19. Yes the batter is thicker... yes i find some apples are more flavourful than others ;)

  20. These were good! I think next time I'd add some cinnamon to the batter to help carry the streusel flavor throughout.

    I'm going to try to freeze some of these so I can have them ready when the holidays roll around!

  21. And I used a mixture of 2 different types of apples. Yum!

  22. I just made these and they are delicious . Thank you for a good recipe. :)
