Cinnamon-Streusel Cider Muffins
A thick sprinkling of streusel tops a pan of these quick and easy muffins. Their
mild apple flavoring is sure to please all -- especially when they're served
fresh from the oven.
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons cold butter
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup apple cider or apple juice
1/4 cup cooking oil
FOR STREUSEL: Stir brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in small bowl. Cut in butter
with a pastry blender. Set aside.
FOR MUFFINS: Lightly oil twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups or line with paper baking
cups; set aside. In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, granulated sugar,
baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center. In a small mixing bowl
combine egg, apple cider, and oil; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir just
till moistened. (The batter should be lumpy.)
Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the batter into each prepared muffin cup. Sprinkle 1
teaspoon of the brown sugar mixture over each. Fill with remaining batter.
Sprinkle tops of muffins with remaining streusel.
Bake in a preheated 400° F oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove
muffins from pans; cool slightly on racks.
