Apple Crumble Muffins

This is definitely one of the best spring's treats and it is best served during tea time while letting the sun ray shines on your skin outdoor.

One of the good tips that I have for baking muffins; you can replace the milk with sour cream to give that extra zing while still keeping them moist.

I made this when Chef Dr. Ezani,Malaysia's first Masterchef paid a visit to Adelaide and well, she gave me a charming grin and said "Sedap!".
