½ teaspoon baking soda
¾ cup sour cream

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners or cooking spray.

8. In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together sour cream, egg, and vanilla.
9. Add liquids to flour mixture and stir until just combined.
10. Add 3/4 cup of streusel mixture to flour mixture and stir until streusel is just distributed throughout batter.
11. Melt the remaining butter and stir into remaining streusel mixture, until streusel resembles a crumble.
12. Gently fold apples into batter.
13. Divide batter among 12 muffin cups and sprinkle generously with streusel topping, crumbling with your hands to make some big chunks.
14. Bake 22-24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of muffin comes out clean.
15. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
16. To make the glaze, whisk the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla extract together.
