Apple Strudel Muffins

Oh yes, it's time for another yummy recipe!  You're welcome, my friends.

I had these the other day at a friend's house, and they were so yummy, I just had to get the recipe.  I made my own batch the very next day, and they were gone within hours.  These muffins are moist and cake-like, with just enough spice in the batter and a yummy crisp topping.  What a yummy way to get a fun and comforting taste of the season.
