12 muffins


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup apple cider

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup apples- peeled, cored, and finely diced


  • cup packed brown sugar

  • cup rolled oats

  • cup chopped pecans

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease the bottoms of 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.

  2. Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl; mix well.

  3. Combine apple cider, vegetable oil, and egg in another bowl; blend well. Add flour mixture all at once and stir just until moistened; batter will be lumpy. Stir in apples.

  4. Combine brown sugar, oats, pecans, and flour in a medium bowl for topping; mix well. Mix in melted butter until all ingredients are moistened and clumpy.

  5. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full. Top each with a generous amount of streusel topping.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 to 22 minutes. Let cool for 1 minute before removing from the pan. Serve warm.

Cook's Note:

You can use either fresh or store-bought apple cider. You can also use chopped walnuts instead of pecans, if you'd like.
