Recipe – Autumn Apple Muffins

In my ongoing quest for ‘healthy’ cake I recently adapted an existing muffin recipe to use up some of the many windfall apples I get from my mum-in-law at this time of year. Knocking up a batch of these is a great thing to do on a gloomy autumn afternoon, and they’re so easy kids can have a go at them too!

To make 12 muffins you will need…

275g plain flour (wholemeal if you like)

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

150g golden caster sugar

225g chopped apple

75ml sunflower or rapeseed oil

175ml apple juice

2 medium eggs

50g raisins

 

Pre-heat your oven to 190ÂșC/gas 5.

Place 12 large paper cases in your muffin tin.

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

Mix the wet ingredients together in a jug.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones.

Mix lightly until the flour has disappeared, but the mixture is still a bit lumpy.

Fold in the apple and raisins.

Divide the mixture between the paper cases.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until well-risen and a bit crusty.

Enjoy – these are perfect with coffee!
