Apple Muffins with Browned Butter Streusel

Apple Muffins with Browned Butter Streusel

A few years ago I was asked to judge a local apple cooking contest. The recipes were incredibly diverse and ranged from apple leather to apple pizza. But there was one recipe that stood out from all the rest: apple muffins. These were the lightest apple muffins I had ever tasted and they boasted a deep apple flavor along with a generous amount of diced sweet/tart apple.

Simple Cheese Pogácsa

Simple Cheese Pogácsa

The Hungarian word for biscuit, roughly translated, is pogácsa, and there are two basic types: salty and sweet. But within each category huge variations exist. I posted a recipe for Vajas pogácsa, a sweet Hungarian butter biscuit awhile back, but recently I got to bake with a real live Hungarian baker in my home kitchen and she taught me how to make these Simple Cheese Pogácsa, a delicious and addictive cheesy biscuit to nibble on anytime and to serve with drinks.
