heavenly apple muffins

i am almost always disappointed when I eat a fruit muffin. there is just never enough fruit in any blueberry, raspberry, cranberry, whatever muffin i’ve ever had. it’s truly a pet peeve of mine, so i am not kidding when i say these are the best apple muffins i have ever tasted, BURSTING with apple goodness.

it’s no secret that Smitten Kitchen is one of my all-time favorite blogs. Deb just does not steer your wrong. the first time i made these I followed the recipe to the letter. and it was magic. the second time, i added a streusel topping. mind further blown.

streusel topping:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar (this includes the 1/4 cup brown sugar topping from the recipe)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

mix the flour, sugars and salt and add melted butter. stir with a fork until you get little pea-sized cruumbles. divide evenly among muffins before popping them into the oven.
