October 16, 2011
"If you don’t have a coarse grater the apples may be very finely chopped but the muffins will not have the same texture If you are doubling the recipe do not double the recipe in one bowl make two separate recipes in two bowls. These may also be baked in mini loaf pans"

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Set oven rack to second-lowest position.
Grease a 6 jumbo muffin tins.
For streusel; in a bowl bowl combine the brown sugar with flour and cinnamon; using fingers blend in the cold butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs; set aside.
In a medium bowl combine the flour with baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl beat together butter with applesauce, sugar, eggs and vanilla until smooth and no sugar granules remain (about 3 minutes).
Stir in grated apples.
Using a wooden spoon or a spatula gradually blend in the flour mixture just until combined (do not over mix the batter).
Spoon half of the batter between the muffin tins (I use about 2 heaping tablespoonfuls for each jumbo muffin tin) then spoon half of the streusel mixture over the batter.
Spoon remaining batter over the streusel then top with remaining streusel.
Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven or until muffins test done.
Allow to sit 5 minutes before removing muffins from pan.
