Apple Butter Muffins
½ cup butter, softened
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
½ cup milk
1¾ tsp baking powder
1½ cups flour
2 tsp vanilla
2 tbs cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
¾ cup raisin and chopped dates, soaked in water
½ cup butter softened
1½ cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
½ cup old fashioned rolled oats
½ cup flour
2 tbsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350℉.
Cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well combined. Mix in milk and eggs. Stir in baking powder and flour.
Add vanilla, apple butter, cinnamon and cloves. Mix until smooth. Drain raisins and dates and fold into batter.
Grease 18 muffin cups or line with muffin papers. Fill each cup half full with batter. Set aside.
Place all streusel ingredients into a medium-sized bowl. Using a spoon or your hands, mix all ingredients until the mixture is well combined and crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over the tops of muffins.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 209℉. Remove from the oven but allow muffins to remain in the pan until streusel has set up about 15 minutes. Remove muffins to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely before storing.
