Apple Crumb Muffins Recipe
One test kitchen professional said these Apple Crumb Muffins are like a classic apple muffin "with a nutty essence." We love these Apple Crumb Muffins because the texture is spot-on; one test kitchen professional said they "aren't so soft they will fall apart, but they are almost cake-like in their softness." Make a batch of these tender muffins to have for breakfasts on the go, bake these soft treats for afternoon coffee and tea with the girls, or impress every parent at the bake sale with these muffins that people will think came from the local bakery. Although the recipe calls for Fuji, you can use whichever apple variety you prefer. The test kitchen professionals who like Fuji apples said they're sweet and stay crisp. Some argued for golden delicious apples because they're tender, and others said honeycrisp or gala apples would work, too. A tip from the test kitchen: Don't over-work these muffins—they only need mixing until it is just combined, which helps keep them super soft.
