So convenient! Made the streusal and sugar cinnamon topping for the muffin I had. Would definitely try it again since it's so easy and yet so good! Next time I'll try it with walnuts too. Thanks, Gerry!

Made a variety of muffins using these muffin toppings. They looked great and taste so good. .Having this recipe handy rather than trying to guess the amounts of ingredients on my own was so useful. This recipe will be with my muffin recipes. Thanks Gerry for taking the time to post another wonderful recipe.

I used the struesal topping on Fresh Apple Bread for a nice extra flavoring. Can't wait to make muffins and use the nut and sugar cinnamon topping as well. Thanks Gerry for posting this recipe !
