  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Streusel Topping:

Directions

Combine dry ingredients with whisk. Combine wet ingredients & then mix with dry ingredients, just until moistened. Fold in apples. Scoop batter into 18 muffin cups. Top with streusel topping (cut together butter, sugar, and cinnamon until crumbly). Bake at 375 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes.
