Your Recipe, My Kitchen: Apple Strudel Muffins

I started bookmarking and copying down recipes from other blogs right from the very beginning of my own blogging experience.  The plethora of good cooks and good recipes never ceases.  I found the recipe for Apple Strudel Muffins on Parenting the Tiniest of Miracles blog through the Ultimate Recipe Swap hosted by Life as Mom in April of 2009.  Yup, this recipe has waited a long time to be made.  And am I ever glad I finally did.  It was a huge hit and made a wonderful breakfast.
These muffins are FULL of apples.  They are moist and sweet and delicious.  They are going on to my regular rotation of muffins.  Once again, I am so glad I made myself start cooking and baking from my huge list of bookmarked recipes.

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
6-8 medium apples, peeled, cored and chopped fine
1/3 cup brown  sugar
1 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.   Grease a regular sized 12 muffin pan.  Cream butter and sugar.  Add the eggs and vanilla.  Combine the dry ingredients and add.  Stir in the apples. Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin tin.   Mix the topping ingredients in a bowl with a pastry blender until crumbly.  Sprinkle evenly on top of all the muffins.  Bake for 18-20 minutes.  Remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes before removing from pan.  Cool on a rack.

Now it's your turn.  Link up any of the recipes you have made recently using other blogs for inspiration or recipes.  Remember to link back to this blog, give credit to the original author and have fun!

Your apple muffins remind me of muffins I made when I had a small bakery. There was probably the equivalent of an apple in each muffin. Your streusel is much better than mine, I never seem to have a lot of luck with them. Next time!
