Mincemeat for the Apple & Mincemeat Streusal Muffins

I used my Easy Slow Cooker Mincemeat with Ginger to make the muffins, but if you don’t have homemade mincemeat then you can get some really good mincemeat in groceries and supermarkets

Peel, core and chop the apples for the Apple and Mincemeat Streusel Muffins

Add the mincemeat and the chopped apple and gently fold into the muffin mixture. I used windfall apples from my apple tree, but any firm eating apple would be suitable.

fill the mixture for the Apple and Mincemeat Streusel Muffins into 12 paper muffins cases

Divide the mixture between the 12 muffin cases and fill to the top, then sprinkle 1 tsp of the Streusel mixture onto each of the muffins and bake.

I LOVE a mincemeat muffin. All the teaste of a pie but witout any heavy pastry. Great with a dollop of boozy cream too!

Mmmmmm, Janice these look awesome! Although, I have to say that I’d much rather tuck into that gorgeous bowl of batter than the finished cakes #batterlove 😀
