These looked beautiful going into the oven... unfortunately, they didn't come out looking as nice. The streusel topping sank into a few of them. And on others, it fell off of the side and burned onto the muffin tin. Also, when I took them out of the tin to place them on a rack to cool, the bottoms of them were all wet with oil. I think the margarine from the streusel did it. The flavour was still good though. I liked the idea of shredding the apple. I just took a medium apple and shredded it with my cheese grater. No peeling or anything. Just stopped when I go to the core. I think that next time, I will leave off the streusel topping. Or maybe make it with shortening instead.
