Very yummy apple muffins. The caramel gives the muffins a slightly gooey consistency that is wonderful - if you love caramel. Granny Smith apples work well with this recipe but any type of apple will do. You can always add a dash of cinnamon if you're a cinnamon lover.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream sugar and butter together. Add egg and mix well. Set aside for now.
  2. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix with creamed mixture while also adding the milk. Mix in vanilla.
  3. Grate one apple using a carrot grater, avoiding the core. Mix in most of the grated apple into the batter. Set aside a small amount of shredded apple, approximately 1/8 cup, for later use.
  4. Grease the muffin pan. Fill 12 muffin tins 2/3 full of the muffin batter.
  5. Melt caramel and drizzle 1 spoonful of caramel into the center of each muffin. Cover muffins with remaining batter.
  6. Make Streusel: Mix all of the ingredients for the streusel together in a bowl. Make sure streusel is thoroughly mixed.
  7. Sprinkle the top of muffins with streusel mixture. Add approximately 1 teaspoon of caramel right in the middle of each muffin top. Then sprinkle more shredded apple and streusel on top.
  8. Bake at 375°F for 25 to 30 minutes.
