Norma DeRemer


Here is another one of my five ingredient recipes that my family loves when I make them. Smells like a bakery in the house that calls all the kids, guest, friends to my kitchen.These individual cakes are a cross between apple walnut streusel coffee cake and iced cinnamon rolls and all in one muffin. How great is that?
