Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

As the recipe promised, this was an easy recipe. My favorite part of this is the crunch crumb topping on the muffins. Nothing like a bit of sugar to get me going in the morning. My go-to muffin recipe is still the Banana Chocolate Nut Muffins from mellybrelly.

* 1/2 cup white sugar
* 1/4 cup brown sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

* 1/3 cup milk
* 2 apples - peeled, cored and chopped

Topping:
* 1/2 cup brown sugar
* 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/4 cup butter, cubed [1/2 stick]

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. Stir together 1 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, salt, baking powder and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix in oil, egg and milk. Fold in apples. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling to the top of the cup.
  3. For the topping: In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, butter and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix together with fork and sprinkle over unbaked muffins.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out with just a few crumbs stuck to it.
