Apple Strudel Muffins

Recipe and photo from here

2 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 C butter
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 C brown sugar

2 eggs

1 1/4 tsp vanilla
3 granny smith apples, peeled (1-shredded and 2 chopped)
1/2 C cinnamon chips (I couldn't find any cinnamon chips so we did without. I can only imagine they would make these better though.)

1/3 C brown sugar
1 Tbsp flour

1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp cold butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease muffin pan.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg

In another bowl, beat the butter, sugars and eggs together until smooth. Mix in vanilla. Add in apples and cinnamon chips. Gradually add in the flour mixture. Note that this is a thick batter. Spoon the mixture into greased or lined muffin pan.

In another small bowl combine the topping ingredients: brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is like course crumbs. Sprinkle over tops of mixture in muffin pan.

Bake 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to sit 5 minutes before removing muffins from pan. Cool on a wire rack.
