Coconut Streusal Apple Muffins

This recipe creates a nice light muffin
with a deliciously sweet topping.
The recipe is from the Pillsbury Complete Book of Baking.
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup finely chopped, peeled apple
3/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup oil
1 egg, beaten
Streusal Topping
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp margarine or butter, softened
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup coconut
Heat oven to 400F.  Grease bottoms only of 2 muffin cups.
In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; mix well.
In small bowl, combine milk, oil and egg; blend well.
Add to dry ingredients all at once; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened
(batter will be lumpy)
Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full.
In small bowl, blend streusel ingredients with fork until crumbly.
Sprinkle approximately 1 Tbsp of topping over each muffin.
Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes
or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool 1 minute before removing from pan.
Serve warm!

  1. These muffins look delicious! I must add them to my "must bake these" list. :)


  2. Glorious Day, Alana!
    Those muffins look amazing. I think I may even have the recipe book and will have to look it up. If not, I'll come back here for the recipe!
    Thank YOU so much for visiting me today and for your sweet comment.
    I recognize the photo in your blog header as the fountains at Butchart Gardens! My hubby and I were there last May and it is surely heaven on earth. Watch for a post soon on Butchart - it was on my bucket list for many years...

    1. They are delicious! Yes, the photo is from Butchart Gardens :) We were there a few years ago in the fall but would love to go back in the spring and in the summer as well. Can't wait so see your pictures from the gardens!

  3. I love the addition of apples and apple juice with brown sugar. I know the taste must be marvelous! Thank you for including the recipe at Rattlebridge. Foodie Friday will celebrate its 4th anniversary on April 11th (hard to believe we’ve been around that long, isn’t it?!), so please join us!


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
