    If you don't like the idea of the brown sugar and the cinnamon on top of the muffins then you can ice them instead. Mix 2 tablespoons of water and 120g of icing sugar in a bowl and mixture until smooth and glossy. Drizzle the icing on to the muffins when they are cool.

    Lovely and light muffins. Perfect for afternoon tea. I used melted butter instead of solid.  -  17 Feb 2018

    Couldn't really taste Apple as the cinnamon dominated the flavour however the muffins are very moist and I will try making them again but use fresh apples  -  24 Nov 2015
