INGREDIENTS

Muffins

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup C&H® Granulated Sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Topping

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup C&H® Granulated Sugar
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed C&H® Dark Brown Sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into pieces

INSTRUCTIONS

Muffins

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 12 muffin cups.

With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

With the mixer on low speed, add the sour cream and chopped apples. Add the dry ingredients; mix just until combined. Divide the batter among the muffin cups.

Topping

To make the streusel topping, combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix with your fingers until combined and the butter is evenly distributed. Sprinkle the topping over the muffins.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool slightly before removing from pan.
