Phyllis Hoffman Christmas 2011

This is a quick fix when time is running short.  You need something fast. Everyone will think you worked hard putting those wonderful warm and moist muffins out on the table.  Keep it a secret, they will never know they are eating a muffin from a box.  It's a old family secret recipe.....................Enjoy

1 *(15.2 ounce) box cinnamon streusel muffin & quick bread mix
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1/2 cup chopped Braeburn apple
1/2 cup finely grated carrot

This recipe makes 12 muffins. Spray your muffin pan with Pam spray or line it with paper liners.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

In a medium bowl add the muffin mix, milk, sour cream, oil and the eggs. Stir this mixture only until combined and all is moistened. Add the grated or finely cut apple and the carrot and stir this in. Using a spoon or a ice cream scoop divide the batter evenly between the muffin cups. Sprinkle the streusel powder evenly over all the batter in the muffin cups. Bake at 400 degrees for about 16-20 minutes. Remove from oven when the toothpick inserted almost in the center comes away clean and allow the muffins to rest for a short time.  After about 5 minutes remove them to a cooling rack. Serve warm with butter.
