INTRODUCTION

I had 3 apples sitting in my fridge for ages and it seemed that no body wanted to have them so I thought I might as well used it to prepare some cakes.  In fact, I have a few choices. One is to prepare an apple crumble pie as in this post: Small Appetite Foodie’s Apple Pie

Or I can prepared the Greek Apple Cake as in this post: Greek Apple Cake (Milopita) With Brown Sugar Walnut Glaze (希腊苹果蛋糕)

Then I thought since I never had an apple muffin recipe before, so I decided to design an apple muffin recipe.

When I posted in Chinese  Facebook Group, one member remarked that the muffins look rough and she wonder how is the structure. I think she referred to the crumble on top of the muffins and I told her it is the crumbles on top of the muffins that differentiate these muffins with other recipes.  On the contrary, my wife said that the rough crumble was delicious and demanded for more in my next attempt.  Well, these crumbles are basically just pie crust or type of short bread, it complements well with the muffins and I myself like the crunchy crumbles.

Don’t doubt if these muffins are moist. Any bakes with fruit puree will definitely be very moist . However, freshly baked muffins tends to be drier and will become moister after it was placed on the table overnight. We finished all the muffins for two breakfast and there is no complain in the house at all.
