The original recipe was from a 1942 Good Housekeeping Cookbook. I changed a few things, added a few things and made this Coffeecake into muffins. It's a delicious treat to go with your morning coffee, or great for just a snack.
1STREUSEL TOPPING: mix brown sugar, panko crumbs and walnuts together in a bowl. Cut in butter to make a crumbly topping. Sit aside.
2MIX TOGETHER: flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, then add and mix in brown sugar.
3CUT IN: shortening and apple butter
4ADD: Raisins and 1/2 c chopped walnuts
5COMBINE: eggs and milk. Stir together JUST until mixed. Using an ice cream scoop, put heaping scoops into muffin tins sprayed with Baker's Joy.
6Sprinkle a small amount of crumb topping on top of muffins. Bake 350° for about 18-22 min. Time will var from oven to oven. A toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean when muffins are done.
