I had a few apples left in my fridge so I decided to make apple strudel muffins (adapted from allrecipes.com).

I have made quite a few changes from the original recipe by reading all the comments– more cinnamon, more chopped apples (3 cups instead of 1 1/2 cups), substituted half a cup of white sugar for brown sugar (instead of 1 full cup of white sugar), and a little less butter (1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup).

After making all kinds of changes, I am definitely keeping this recipe in the recipe box for my family to use. The muffins came out surprisingly good! Even though the batter was a bit stiff, it still came out moist, which is how they are supposed to be.

Optional: Double the topping ingredients if you want to layer the batter. Also, it doesn’t hurt to add a little bit more cinnamon!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 20 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups chopped apples (1 1/2 cups chopped, 1 1/2 cups shredded)

Ingredients for topping:

  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar and eggs until smooth. Mix in vanilla extract. Stir in apples, and gradually blend in the flour mixture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin pan.
  4. For the topping: In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Mix in butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over tops of mixture in muffin pan.
  5. 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. Cool on a wire rack.

Enjoy!
