INSTRUCTIONS

Crumb Topping

Place all ingredients into a medium bowl. Use hands to combine until mixture forms crumbs; set aside.

Muffins

Preheat oven to 375° F. Grease muffin pan or line with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, add sugar and chopped apples. Mix together with a hand mixer until sugar begins to liquefy slightly, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Add oil, egg and vanilla to the apple mixture; mix well. Slowly add half the flour mixture, sour cream and then remaining flour mixture.

Pour batter almost to the top of prepared muffin pan. Sprinkle crumb topping evenly on each muffin. Bake 35 minutes.

Remove from oven; allow to cool until warm to the touch before removing from pan.
