Apple Muffins

I'm on a muffin kick and these definitely topped the banana ones! "Pieces of tender apples appear in every bite of these pretty muffins that are the perfect treat to share with afternoon coffee." Forget afternoon coffee, these guys are good anytime of day! They were wonderfully moist and the sweet crunchy top made the whole thing melt in your mouth. A must try! Here's the recipe:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups tart apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, beat the eggs, sour cream and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apples. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.
For topping. combine sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle a rounded teaspoonful over each muffin.
Bake for 18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.
