"This is my original, delicious recipe which makes 10 muffins. The apple, cinnamon and sugar topping creates a delicious crispness to the initial bite of the muffin. This compliments the subtle sweetness of the moist, fluffy cake. They’re extremely easy to make, yet are still a crowd favorite. Not only that, but they store well in an airtight container!"
