Mix and Bake Muffins
I think these muffins came from the Dallas Morning News. They are super easy and super yummy. I like to make them on Sunday and enjoy them all week.

¼ C milk
¼ C vegetable oil
2 large eggs
15.2 oz package cinnamon streusel muffin mix
½ tsp ground cinnamon
8 ounces can crushed pineapple in juice
¾ peeled, grated granny smith apple
¾ C chopped toasted pecans
½ C raisins vegetable cooking spray
1 C powdered sugar
½ tsp grated lemon rind
1 - 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

2. Whisk together first 3 ingredients until blended.

3. Remove and reserve streusel packet from muffin mix package. Stir together contents of muffin mix package and cinnamon in a large bowl. Make a well in center of mixture. Add egg mixture, pineapple, and next 3 ingredients, stirring just until moistened.

4. Place baking cups in muffin pans. Spray with cooking spray. Spoon batter into cups, filling two-thirds full. Sprinkle evenly with reserved streusel package.

5. Bake at 425 degrees for 18-23 minutes or until golden. Cool in pans on wire racks for 5 mins. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.

6. Stir together powdered sugar, lemon rind, and lemon juice until smooth, and drizzle over tops of muffins.
