Spiced Apple Cider Muffins with Streusel Topping

Spiced Apple Cider Muffins with Streusel Topping

My kids ran laps in their gym to raise money for their school today. They did around 50 laps each and were tired but very proud of themselves when I picked them up from school today.  To celebrate their great lap running we made homemade spiced apple cider muffins with streusel topping from a recipe I found on Eating Well.  They were a snap to make and smelled amazing while baking in the oven.  My kids gobbled them up in seconds and wanted more.  These muffins were a big hit and won’t last long in this house.

How to Make Spiced Apple Cider Muffins with Streusel Topping

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.

To make the streusel, combine the flour, oats, cinnamon, and butter together with your fingers until crumbly.  Set aside.

Combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove together in a bowl until well mixed.

In another bowl, whisk the brown sugar with the egg until well combined.  Add the apple butter, maple syrup, apple cider, and yogurt then mix well.  Slowly add the flour mixture to the egg mixture; gently stir until JUST combined.  Don’t overmix.

Spoon the batter equally into the muffin tray.  Sprinkle the streusel evenly over the top of each muffin.

Place the tray into the oven and bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.  Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before moving them to a rack to cool further.  Serve slathered in butter.  Enjoy.

  2. Congratulations to your children on their 50 laps! These muffins look like the perfect way to re-fuel and celebrate their success! πŸ™‚

  3. I love a muffin that has a nice ‘crown’ … these look wonderful! All one needs is a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee and a couple of them to start the day! YUM!

  4. these look awesome! i keep seeing muffins on food blogs this week – must be time to start baking now that i’m finally home from europe πŸ™‚ thanks for this yummy recipe!

  5. i haven’t made muffins in the longest time
    all i’ve been craving are blueberry pancakes (when i can carb load)
    the streusel is what i’d eat first, then butter up the second half and devour.

  6. When I first glanced at the recipe title, I saw “spider” for a second from the “spiced” and “cider”.

    Great looking muffins, Pam. Did your kids sleep well that night after all that running?
