Why is it...

that mini-almost-anything is so appealing? Like these muffins I made for our ladies' Bible study starting this morning? Just two mouthfuls of yummy, warm goodness. With the days shortening and a chill in the air, these Apple Struesel Muffins are the perfect start to a fall day.

Apple Struesel Muffins

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable cooking oil
3/4 cup grated apple, peeled or not (I didn't peel mine)

In mixing bowl stir together flours, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl beat egg, milk and cooking oil to blend. Stir in apple. Pour into flour mixture and stir just until moistened. Fill muffin cups (I made 3 dozen mini ones - or 12 regular sized) Sprinkle with streusel topping (below) and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. (15 minutes for the minis)

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour (I used whole wheat)
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Rub all ingredients together until crumbly.

Your muffins do sound yummy, any size. I'll try them out this weekend with small apples from the church's tree.

Hi Lorrie...
Oh, your minis looks so good. Love the smell of apples baking with cinnamon. Fall is definitely here!

Have a wonderful weekend.
