Apple Streusel Muffins

These muffins received rave reviews from my in-house taste testers. On second thoughts, they've decided that the jam donut muffins still get the first rank, the apple streusels get a close second. The recipe is from Women's Weekly Little Pies & Cakes cookbook.

Women's Weekly Little Pies and Cakes Cookbook
40g butter
3 apples, peeled, cut into 1cm pieces
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 cups self-raising flour
1 tsp mixed spice (I used ground cinnamon)
2/3 cup caster sugar
80g butter, melted (I used vegetable oil)
¾ cup buttermilk (I used plain yoghurt and a bit of milk)
1 egg

Streusel topping
1/3 cup self-raising flour
1/3 cup plain flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
½ tsp ground cinnamon
80g cold butter, cubed


1.          Make streusel topping by scrunching everything together with fingertips or process them all in a food processor.  Freeze for about 15 mins.
2.          Cook apples in a pan with 40g of butter for about 5 mins then add the brown sugar, cook for another 5 mins, then allow to cool.
3.          Preheat oven to 180°C.
4.          Combine all the dry ingredients, then the wet ingredients.
5.          Stir in 3/4 of the apples, do no overmix.
6.          Scoop into muffin pan and top each with a spoonful of apples and grate/crumble the streusel over them.
7.          Bake 20 mins in 180°C oven.
