Makes 12 muffins

A thick sprinkling of streusel tops a pan of these quick and easy muffins. Their mild apple flavoring is sure to please all -- especially when they're served fresh from the oven.


  • For the Streusel:
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • For the Muffins:
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3/4 cup apple cider or apple juice
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil



In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender. Set aside.


Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin pan or line with paper baking cups; set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center. In a small mixing bowl, combine the egg, apple cider and oil; add to the flour mixture. Stir just till moistened. (The batter should be lumpy.)

Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the batter into each prepared muffin cup. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the streusel mixture over each. Fill with remaining batter. Sprinkle tops of muffins with remaining streusel. Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove the muffins from pans; cool slightly on racks.
