apple crumbles muffin recipe

This Apple Crumble Muffins recipe was modified from an old recipe I found in my recipe book collection. It is very easy to bake and yummy delicious to eat as dessert. Love the moist apple in the muffins, plus the hint of cinnamon and the chunky nutty pecans… oh… I want some more!!!

I was reorganizing my recipe books on my bookshelf and recover this old recipe book by chance. I bought this recipe book from London some 20 years ago. It is just a tiny little cake recipe book and the recipe seems simple and yet delicious. Though, there are not many photos showing all the cakes in the book but reading through the ingredients already made me drooling. Yum yum!

Cook’s Note:

1. The apple ring should be smaller than the hole of the muffin pan. If they are too big, trim off a little.
