Apple, Cinnamon & Fudge Muffins

These muffins have quickly become a firm favourite in our family. I made them for Bella’s second birthday a couple of weeks back and they were such a huge hit I have already made another batch and I’m pretty sure I’ll be making them on a regular basis from now on! I have tweaked the original recipe slightly by adding in cinnamon and fudge pieces to jazz them up a bit. They are the perfect muffins for the cooler Autumn & Winter months, especially warm from the oven! Apple & Fudge is a match made in heaven and of course, who doesn’t love the smell of cinnamon coming from the kitchen at this time of year!?

What I love most about this recipe is just how simple it is. To me it’s an ‘old fashioned’ recipe as all you need is a mixing bowl & a spoon! No messing around with fancy mixers or food processors. Which means they are super quick to make and the mess is minimal. A perfect recipe to make with little ones!

Enjoy!

 Ingredients (Makes 9 Muffins)

  • 200g Plain Flour
  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 50g Soft Brown Sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsps. of Baking Powder
  • Pinch Of Salt
  • 1 generous tsp of Ground Cinnamon
  • 90ml Semi Skimmed Milk
  • 80ml Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Large Egg, beaten
  • 5 drops of vanilla essence of 1 tsp or vanilla paste
  • 2 large eating apples, peeled, cored and chopped into cubes
  • Mini fudge pieces
  • Icing sugar

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6 and add paper cases to a muffin tray
  2. Measure out all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl; flour, both sugars, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Add the milk, oil, egg and vanilla to the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined (mixture will be lumpy).
  4. Fold the chopped apple into the mixture.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases. I personally use an ice cream scoop for this as I find it easier to make sure the mixture is split evenly and its much less messy
  6. Sprinkle a few mini fudge pieces over the top of each muffin. Using a sieve dust each muffin with some icing sugar.
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Transfer onto a wire cooling rack to cool or of course you can serve them warm straight from the oven 😉
