I promise these are yummy. Use the apples you love and you’ll just relish in these amazing spongy delights! Here I have used granny smith apples with the skin still on, after washing of course. I also love these muffins using gala apples with the skin giving a hint of red peeking through, creating a sense of wonder to the round morsels! Have a go, we ate nearly all of them for breakfast…. whoops!
2 apples, diced (I leave the skin on)
125 g butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
½ cup milk
1 cup caster sugar
2 cups self-raising flour
2 tbs oats, 1 tbs raw sugar and 1 tbs ground cinnamon to sprinkle on top if you like
Place the butter and sugar in your mixing bowl and mix until smooth. Add the eggs and mix for a further minute on low. Now add the cinnamon, flour, milk, salt and vanilla. Mix until well combined and looking lovely. Now add your chopped apple. Mix until the apple is through your batter. Spoon your mixture into lined muffin cases. If you like you can sprinkle some extra ground cinnamon and some raw sugar on top for a sugary cracked look, or leave plain, or even add a thin slice of apple to the top. Bake in a 180 degree Celsius oven for about 20-25 minutes. Smell that! It is the smell of love!! Enjoy your muffins warm, or once cooled, keep in an air tight container for up to 2 days to prolong the yumminess!
