Taste of Home - Apple Streusel Muffins

These are the BEST muffins ever!!
Yield: 16 muffins

2 c all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1-1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 c sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 c (8 oz) sour cream
1/4 c butter, melted
1-1/2 c chopped peeled tart apples

Topping
1/4 c sugar
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp cold butter

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, beat the eggs, sour cream & butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apples. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two thirds full.

For topping, combine sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle a rounded teaspoonful over each muffin.

Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.
