Apple Crumb Muffins



My husband is a huge fan of apples in baked goods and I made these apple crumb muffins just for him. They keep very well in the freezer, just give them a few seconds in the microwave. (But if you, like me, use foil tins, make sure to pop them out beforehand!)


Apple Crumb Muffins

100 g butter, melted
2 eggs 
150 ml sugar
1 tsp vanilla sugar
200 ml milk
400 ml flour (240 g)
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt

Filling: 
2 apples
2 tbsp sugar
cinnamon
1 tbsp butter

Topping: 
75 g cold butter
200 ml oats
100 ml flour
100 ml sugar
pinch of salt 

Start with the filling. Peel, core and dice the apples. Melt the butter and toss with the apples, sugar and a dash of cinnamon.

For the muffins, whisk eggs and sugar until fluffy. Stir in vanilla sugar, flour and baking powder, and milk. Finally add the butter, and also add the apple filling. Dollop into muffin tins or muffin liners in one of those cupcake tins if you have them.

For the topping, mix cold butter with oats, flour, sugar and a pinch of salt until it's grainy and rubbly. A Kitchen-Aid will do it very fast, but your fingertips will suffice as well. Sprinkle this topping on top of the muffins.

Bake at 200°C for about 20 minutes. Check to see that they're cooked through (using a metal tester or a toothpick - it should come out clean) and that the topping is nicely golden.
