Apple & Cinnamon Muffins

Muffins are so easy to make, in fact, you need no real baking skills to make them especially these ones which I created so that anyone can easily make them at home.

There are no complicated techniques involved. All you need is a stand or hand mixer, a weighing scales, a sieve and a muffin tin.

You can experiment and change the apple and cinnamon to whatever you like from chocolate chips to blueberries.

Check out our quick step by step video to see just how easy they are to make.






3 cooking apples
400g self raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
200g caster sugar
150g brown sugar and a little to dust the top
160ml vegetable or sunflower oil
180ml milk
2 tsp vanilla extract or 4 of vanilla essence
1 tbsp cinnamon use 2 tbsp if you really like it, and a little to dust the tops
2 large eggs


Pre-heat your oven to 190C or Gas Mark 5
Peel, core and dice the apple. Watch our quick video above to see how. Place in cold water until needed later.
Sieve the flour, caster sugar and baking powder into a bowl.
Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, eggs, milk, oil and vanilla extract.
Mix well with a stand mixer, hand mixer or whisk for about 1 minute till all the ingredients are blended.
Drain the water from the apples and gently fold into the mix.
Place the muffin cases into the muffin tin and pour mix into each leaving about 2cm gap at the top of each and ensuring the apple is evenly divided between each.
Sprinkle a little brown sugar and cinnamon on top of each muffin.
Bake in your oven for 20 minutes turning the tin halfway through cooking.
Pierce with a knife, skewer or cocktail stick to check if cooked fully. If it comes out dry they are cooked, if wet leave to cook for a few minutes more then test again.
Allow to cool in the tin so they are nice and soft. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days though I doubt they will last that long.

    I made these but ran out of muffin cases so made it in a loaf tin instead.
    Absolutely gorgeous and the apples made it lovely and moist too. Ideal with a cup of coffee in the morning. I used Armagh Bramley Apples. Yum!

    Could the amount of sugar be reduced without affecting the texture?

    1. You can reduce the sugar depending on how tarte the apples you use are. Sweeter apples will need less sugar
