Makes 12 standard sized muffins

for the muffin:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large apple chopped

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp softened butter
  • pinch of cinnamon

for the cinnamon swirl filling:

  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line one 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Make the crumb topping: Combine all ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside until ready to use.
  3. Make the filling: whisk together all ingredients until well combined. Set aside until ready to use.
  4. Make the muffins: combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together oil, egg, and milk. Pour wet ingredient mixture over dry ingredient mixture and stir with big wooden spoon until just combined.
  5. Add 1 1/2 tbsp of batter to each of the prepared muffin cups. Then, add one 3/4 to 1 tsp (depending on how much you like cinnamon!) of the cinnamon swirl filling to the center of the batter. Top with an additional 1 1/2 tbsp of batter.
  6. Cover muffins with crumb topping, then bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Let cool in pan for a few minutes before carefully removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
