Apple Cinnamon Muffins Recipe
A light and fluffy muffin that combines the comforting flavours of apples and cinnamon in a delicious Apple Cinnamon Muffin. This handy recipe uses store cupboard ingredients, which is great for breakfasts on the run, an after school snack or a treat with a coffee.
The lightness of a muffin depends on the mixture just coming together, never beat a muffin mix.
I say that these muffins make 6-12, this is because it depends on the size of your muffin tray.
- 200g plain flour
- 100g caster sugar
- 50g soft brown sugar
- 2½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 90ml milk
- 80ml sunflower oil
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste
- 2 large eating apples - peeled, cored and chopped (red or green)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
- Preheat oven to 180C / Gas 6 and line a muffin tray with cases.
- Add the flour, both caster and brown sugar, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Stir in the apples and coat in the flour mixture.
- In a jug add the milk, oil, egg and vanilla, mix lightly with a fork.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to just bring everything together.
- Spoon the mixture into muffin cases.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and a skewer inserted comes out clean.
The sweetness depends on the apples you use.
If you feel your apples are not sweet, add a drizzle of honey over the top of the muffin once they are cooked or add a sprinkling of icing sugar on top of the muffins before cooking.
