These muffins are delicious, but a little messy, and more involved than your average muffin. Here’s the recipe!


3 cups flour

1/2 cups sugar

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

2 cups tart apple, pared & shredded

1 cup milk

1/2 cup melted butter

2 eggs, beaten



1 cup brown sugar

6 tablespoons flour

1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon

6 tablespoons butter, softened

1 cup chopped walnuts



1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted

2 tablespoons milk

½ teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 400 F, and prepare muffin tins. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Stir in apple and set aside.

In small bowl, combine the milk, butter, and eggs until blended. Add to dry ingredients, and stir just until moistened. Spoon half of batter into muffin cups.

To make the streusel, combine all of the ingredients until crumbly and well-mixed. Reserve ¾ cup, and sprinkle the remaining streusel on the muffins. Cover each muffin with the remaining half of the batter, and sprinkle the reserved streusel on top of muffins. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until muffins spring back to the touch.

Glaze: In a medium bowl, whisk together the convectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla until completely smooth. Immediately drizzle glaze over warm muffins! ENJOY!

Makes about 24 muffins.

Emily’s notes: I’m not a fan of nuts, so I didn’t use the nuts. Also, it does make 24 muffins, but as you can see, mine didn’t rise above the muffin tins, and so there are no muffin tops, which everyone knows is the best part of the muffin. So you might want to make a few less and get better muffins. Also, for the apple, one large apple was enough. But it has to be a large one. Not ordinary size. Good luck!
