The magic of these delicious cinnamon streusel muffins is in the mix. No really, start with packaged mix, add two simple ingredients, and get ready to accept some hearty praise at the breakfast table.


How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare muffin mix according to package directions, stirring dried apple pieces and golden raisins into batter. Place foil baking cups in muffin pans. Spoon batter into cups, filling two-thirds full. Bake and cool muffins according to package directions.

Step 2

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Betty Crocker Cinnamon Streusel Premium Muffin Mix.

I wasn't extremely impressed they were still really good I just feel like the muffin itself wasn't flavorful as I had expected it to be.

Agree with the others, if you don't try it....DON"T RATE IT!!!!!! And everyone needs a quick recipe once in a while, especially if you work.

Box muffins??? Why not just buy the box with the flavor you want???? I thought this was a site that promoted fresh real ingredients- not a quickie!!! Let's be REAL with the ingredient's too.....Sounds like a TV show Kris

People....So what if it's a mix!! I'm a culinary instructor for 15 years and at times I do use a mix at home for my family for quick fixings. Your local bakeries and local large elegant hotel chains like Marriott, Hilton, Biltmores use mixes or premade chocolate cups, mousse mixes, etc., in all their brunches and desserts you pay to eat. I'm grateful this site gives both quick fixes and step by step recipes. Take it as a "thank you" for the short cut today and file it away. Unless you churn your own butter daily (which is super easy to do), then don't criticize. If you have no use for it...wait for tomorrow's recipe.

OMG! This is not a recipe... 0 stars! (well, it would have been 0, but it wouldn't let me post with out 1.)

So the only 2 real reviews of the recipe each gave it five stars. I don't understand why people review recipes they have no intention of making. I certainly wish I had the time to make everything from scratch every day, but it's not possible. I appreciate the recipe, and thought it was very good. I did get lots of compliments from the people at work. Thanks.

Don't insult our intelligence by giving us "recipes" that start out using a prepared mix. When I bake and cook I want to know that I created what I've prepared.

Yeah, I'm disappointed. I don't want to bake out of a bag... Can we have the real recipe, please?
