This past weekend we have had quite lot of wind and heavy rain hit us here in Portland. The temperature has dropped quite a bit from the consistent HOT temps we’ve been experiencing all summer long.

To celebrate what FEELS like Fall, I made these Apple Crumb Muffins! Apples and cool, rainy weather just seem to go together well! So does a hungry tummy and these yummy muffins! 

I found the recipe for these delicious, easy-to-prepare muffins on a blog site that I enjoy, called “Heather’s French Press”, and decided to give ’em a try.

These apple crumb muffins are SO EASY to make… really! Here’s how you make them:

How To Make Apple Crumb Muffins

First you whisk together flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, salt and cinnamon. You have to use cinnamon to make any good apple recipe a hit, right?

Flour and spices in bowl

Next, whisk together one egg, some milk and a bit of melted butter. Whisk it up good, then pour it into the flour mixture.

Stir to combine the ingredients (just until blended in), then fold in the chopped apples.

Time To Fill the Muffin Tins!

Fill paper-lined muffin cups with the apple mixture. Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 full. Now it’s time to bake the muffins.

PLEASE IGNORE my totally ancient/much-abused, horrible-looking muffin pans that have seen a LOT of use over the years! They are a little worse for the wear, but “work” just fine, so I can live with that.

Now it’s time to make the crumb/streusel topping. Easy. Mix the ingredients together in a small bowl, then distribute the streusel over the top of each muffin.

Bake The Apple Crumb Muffins!

Bake the muffins at 400°F. for about 20 minutes, then remove the pan from the oven. The streusel topping on the muffins will be golden brown in color.

You can check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of a muffin. If the toothpick comes out clean, the muffins are done!

Transfer the muffin tin to a wire rack and let the muffins cool slightly (2-3 minutes) before removing the muffins and serving.

Serve The Apple Crumb Muffins

Remove the muffins from the pan and serve these delicious breakfast or snack treats to those you love. See how nice the streusel topping looks?
