Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The streusel topping is what turns this from a good apple muffin recipe to a great apple muffin. The muffin itself is moist with a very mild flavor from the apples. But that streusel... oh my. Full of cinnamon, it bakes to a nice sugary crunch and really complements the apple flavors in the muffin. Just delicious!
