Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping & Cardamom

Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping & Cardamom

Apple muffins with a cripsy crunchy nutty topping! Scrumptious! A great way to make an apple cake but to go, or more manageable when bringing over to a Swedish fika. Cardamom is a must with apples in my Swedish opinion, so if you have it available near you, give it a try!

Have a great appleicious day!

I tried adding a caramel sauce to the middle of the muffins, but it just sedimented to the bottom and hardened way too much, hehe. So do not do that!
