Apple Strudel Muffins

Last week, Sara and I went to an apple orchard. It was raining and there was a bit of thunder, but that didn't stop us. The plan had been to go to the museum, but I was taking care of a chicken we found in the woods at a BBQ a couple days prior (yes, in Chicago... long story! I'll post pics soon.) so I didn't want to do anything that would take us all day. Last night we finally made something with them... Apple Strudel Muffins! They came out fantastic and I plan to make more. The flavor isn't overly sweet or heavy and they are pretty quick to make. Yay for fall, my favorite season!


Ingredients


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped apples

1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tablespoon butter (we added an extra 1/2 Tbs)


Peel and dice your apples. We used a combo of Empire and Jonathan. Then, preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease or line a muffin pan with muffin cups. (Cups= less mess when you eat!)





In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.


In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar and eggs until smooth. Mix in vanilla.





Stir in apples, and gradually blend in the flour mixture.





Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin pan.


In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs. It's helpful to use your fingers to do this, and we found a little extra butter was neede to really get good crumbs.




Sprinkle over tops of mixture in muffin pan.



 
Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to sit 5 minutes before removing muffins from pan and cool on a wire rack.
 
 
Enjoy!
