SRC: Apple Strudel Muffins


Secret Recipe Club

Three cheers for the SRC (Secret Recipe Club) and the second Monday of the month.  It is time to share again an to thank the ladies behind the scenes, Suzanne and April and all the other hard workers, you can find on the SRC blog.

When the name of my assigned blog is mailed to me, I open it with excitement.  I love getting new blogs although when I have gotten someone I know, it has been even more fun.  Questions run through my mind, "Will there be recipes that appeal to me?"  Such a silly question.  I have not yet found a blog without interesting and appealing recipes and yet, each month, I have a moment of fear.

This month, absolutely was no problem.  Not true.  There was a problem.  I could not make a decision what to choose until I heard my husband, in the background, "Bake for me."  How could I turn him down?  So, I looked through Ashley's baked goods from her wonderful blog, Cheese Curd in Paradise.  Isn't that name perfect?  It has a style of its own and certainly makes you want to visit more than once.

There were many interesting baked goods but my eye immediately picked up on Apple Strudel Muffins.  Hubby is the original Muffin Man and I have a year full of muffins, on my blog, keeping him happy.  I am not sure if apple is his favorite fruit but if not on the top of the list, in the top three.  What a perfect recipe, for me, to make for the man I love.

You really should go over and meet Ashley and check out her recipes.  You won't be disappointed.

 Now for the delicious Apple Strudel Muffins    - Gluten Free  (adapted)


Ingredients



2 cups gluten-free flour mix

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 heaping tablespoons applesauce

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cup apples, chopped



For the streusel:

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon brown rice flour

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon oil




Method:





Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12 cup muffin pan and set aside.   In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.


   
In a large bowl, beat oil, sugars, vanilla and eggs till smooth. Gently fold in the apples, and gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin pan. 


 
In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon well to avoid sinking. Once blended, add oil until mixture is like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over tops of mixture in muffin pan.





Bake 20-23 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin come out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
Eat and enjoy.
