Flavor of the Day

Today's muffin flavor...Apple Streusel.

I used some pre-measured muffin mix that I prepared a few weeks ago and got creative. I peeled and sliced a couple of Granny Smith apples and cooked them with a Cinnamon, Cloves, Allspice, and a little water until they were soft. Meanwhile, I mixed up the muffin batter and had it ready in the muffin pan. I made up some streusel topping (flour, brown sugar, Cinnamon and butter mixed/cut to form course crumbs). I spooned hot apples on top of the batter, sprinkled streusel on top and baked it.

They were soooooo good! My best yet! :-)

Here I am for a bit of inspiration and boy have you got it for me today! I really need to get some baking for my crew in anticipation of needing nourishing yet portable snacks/breakfasts/lunches this week and I have to admit I visited a few of your knit blog favourites to inject some new energy into my blogroll and they didn't disappoint either! Thanks for everything (and those muffins sound delicious!)
