About the bake

These apple and cinnamon muffins are absolutely gorgeous, perfect for an afternoon tea time treat or for breakfast. 

10 ingredients4 steps


    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.

    Tried a moment ago. Bery light brown as didn’t add enough cinnamon powder. Not so sweet - good

    I made these buns and they were nice but a little dry....wonder would maple syrup added instead of sugar help to make them more moist? Any one have any idea how many calories these are per bun?

    I would suggest not adding anymore liquid into the recipe but maybe reducing the bake time if you are finding them dry, they might be slightly overbaked.

    Happy Baking!
