Amazing Apple Crumb Muffins

These are the best, moistest apple crumb muffins ever! I used a crumb coffee cake recipe from Brown Eyed Baker. I lightened it up a bit, added some apples, and the most brilliant part – I cooked the muffins for 10 minutes before adding the apple and the crumb. So good, I didn’t even manage to snap a picture – they were gone that quickly. Normally I wouldn’t share a recipe without a picture, but these were GOOOOD! Just picture this:


plus this:

and you’ve got it!

Here’s what you need:

  • 35g butter
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 pink lady apple


  • 35g butter
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 packet vanilla sugar
  • pinch salt

Here’s what you do:

  1. Heat the oven to 350F (160C fan oven). Line muffin tin (makes about 8).
  2. Cream together butter, sugar, and apple sauce. Add eggs, mix well. Continue with vanilla and sour cream.
  3. Mix flour and baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to wet mixture a little at a time.
  4. Pour into muffin tins. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile put all the crumb ingredients in a medium bowl. Pinch together with fingers until crumby.
  6. Peel and cut single apple into tiny pieces.
  7. Remove tin from oven. Push apples into muffins, top with crumb.
  8. Return to oven for an additional 10-15minutes. Do NOT over bake.
  9. Meanwhile make glaze. Stir together powdered sugar and 1 tbs milk. Slowly add more milk until desired consistency is reached.
  10. Remove muffins from tin and allow to cool on wire rack. Put foil under wire rack. Pour glaze over muffins.
  11. Serve once muffins are completely cold (trust me, they’re better that way – I know, crazy!)

Enjoy =)

    I used to eat that Entenmann’s crumb cake all the time when I was in med school! Imagining what that would be like with apple pie right now, haha 🙂
