Apple Streusel Muffins

When I found this streusel-topped apple muffin recipe in my mom’s recipe box I knew I had to try it. She had such an expansive collection of recipes it would take a lifetime to try them all. I don’t remember her making these but can absolutely see her in her North Carolina kitchen making them for my Dad. I decided it would be perfect for apple week with a few of my favorite bloggers. It’s somewhat reminiscent of my Harvest Pound Cake that I posted a while back. I’ve decided I love using fresh apples in baking. I chose to use Granny Smith basically because it’s the variety my Mom used whenever she baked with fresh apples. Plus, who can resist a good streusel topping?

My muffins are perfect for breakfast any day of the week. They won’t keep long, but on the upside, they are so good they won’t last long. They would be great for brunch or a family gathering.
