  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 200°C, (fan 180°C, gas mark 6). Line a muffin tin with 12 cases. Sift the flour, cinnamon, salt and baking powder together into a bowl.

  2. Step 2:

    Whisk together the egg, Half Spoon Sugar, milk, vanilla and melted butter.

  3. Step 3:

    Sift the dry flour mix onto the egg mixture and taking a large metal spoon very quickly fold together the dry ingredients and wet. Take care not to stir or over mix – the dry flour only just needs to be combined. Fold in the diced apple, again quickly and without over mixing.

  4. Step 4:

    Divide the mixture between the muffins cases and bake in the pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove from the muffin tin and leave on a wire rack to cool.
