Streusel Topping

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and flour.

Cut the butter into small pieces using a pastry cutter then use your fingertips to combine with the sugar and flour mixture forming large clumpy pieces.

Muffins

Wash, peel, core and grate the apples, set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves and salt.

Melt the butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Turn off the heat and let cool down.

In another medium sized bowl combine the eggs, melted butter, and sour cream and whisk until well combined.

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

Add the grated apple and stir until just combined. Do not over mix.

Divide the batter evenly into the prepared muffin pan. Divide and put the chunky streusel pieces over tops.

Place into the preheated oven and bake for 20 - 25 minutes until the top of the muffins are browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean.
