Topping options

There are some topping options you can do here.

Once the streusel topping has been put on the batter, you can add a variety of nuts, if you wish to. Or even dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries etc.

You can also decorate them once they've cooled. Use a simple powdered sugar icing and drizzle over the tops, or some melted chocolate. Or simply leave them as they are!
