Apple & Cinnamon Muffins - with Cinnamon Streusel Topping

I found a recipe for a lovely sounding muffin, Apple and Cinnamon, with a streusel topping, on Allrecipes.  It certainly whetted my appetite, since I love cinnamon and am a sucker for a good muffin.  I did read the reviews on the site, which was very important, since some people had problems with over filling the muffin cases, and a streusel topping that was far too wet.

So with mine I only filled my cases to two thirds full and I only used half the amount of butter suggested in the topping.

What a blessing that was, as the results of the bake are just wonderful.  Even during baking I got excited, as the aroma of cinnamon filled the room.

Even with my adjustsments the muffins did run down the sides a little, but nothing too distastrous.

The taste, after they had cooled down, was just wonderful, and with a nice crispy top to augment the soft, moist muffin..  I will be making these again for sure.  The mixture made 8 muffins for me, though the little boxes I made are probably slightly smaller than a normal muffin case.

In the recipe below I have made adjustments, for how I did everthing.  But the original recipe can be found (together with the comments of other bakers)  if you click the link to Allrecipes above.
