This is a recipe from an old Company's Coming recipe book of my mom's. It is so simple, uses up bruised apples, and tastes great. *Note* It is not a typo, it really is 1 tablespoon of baking powder.

I made these and Apple Cinnamon Muffins #122939 (which were very yummy) I wanted to make two recipes to compaire them. My 7year ol son said "tell the cooker these are YUMMY! I give them 10 stars!" Which I think sums it up well! The muffins were light and flavorful and the topping was a wonderful addition! Although I think next time I will make half the topping, we didn't use all that the recipe called for. Thanks for the post!

These muffins are very tasty and easy to make. I made the recipe as posted except that I added 2 small, peeled, diced apples (McIntosh) instead of shredded apple. It worked out fine for me. Mine needed to bake a minute or two longer but that may be my finicky oven. Thank you for posting!
