    About this recipe: These apple cinnamon muffins are easy to make and smell like autumn. The apples are chopped and placed on top of the muffins before baking, which means you don't have to worry about them sinking to the bottom! The sugar-cinnamon topping adds a lovely crunch.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 100g butter, melted and cooled
    • 5 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 1 egg, beaten lightly
    • 125ml milk
    • 125g self-raising flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 apples, cored and finely sliced
    • Topping
    • 4 tablespoons demerara sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Grease muffin tins or line with paper cases.
    2. In a large bowl, combine melted butter, sugar, beaten egg and milk. Sift in the flour, cinnamon and salt and stir gently until just combined. The mixture should be lumpy, not smooth.
    3. Spoon the mixture into the muffin tin until 2/3 full, and push the apple slices slightly into the tops. Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the muffins. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until they go light brown. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.

    This recipe lies. It serves one. And if 11 other people turn up and try to eat my muffins, I will FIGHT them. Seriously. Delicious, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, fruity and... have to cook 4 more batches now. - 17 Jul 2012

    Cakes had great flavour but mix is too wet. Cakes stuck to the paper. I will make again but tweak the recipe to reduce the milk and up the dry ingredients . Recipe specifies too much cinnamon sugar topping - I used 4 teaspoons of sugar and 1/4 cinnamon and there was PLENTY - 02 Sep 2012
