The Germans are famous for their delicious apple cakes, and these Streusel Topped German Apple Muffins have those same wonderful flavors. They are, however, very quick to put together, thanks to two easy mixes: Master Baking Mix and Basic Oatmeal Cookie Mix. These mixes are “must haves” for any cook who wants to make good, nutritious meals, but doesn’t always have the time to spend making everything from scratch. Once these mixes are on the shelf, where they keep for months, these delicious muffins can be put together in about 10 minutes, and baking time is only about 20 minutes. They’re great for breakfast or brunch, and will fill the house with the wonderful aroma of apples and cinnamon.
A note on apples: although any type apple works fine in these muffins as far as texture, Granny Smith apples give the muffins a wonderful, slightly tart flavor, as do Pink Lady; Golden Delicious and Jonagold are also excellent. Red Delicious, while great for eating, are not good for cooking; Fuji, Braeburn, and Gala aren’t generally recommended for cooking, however, they work fine in these muffins.
