Every Autumn, one of the houses on our block walk with Coco puts a bucket outside of their front drive with an invitation to help oneself to bags of their windfall Bramley Apples – what a lovely way to share with neighbours. And by lovely I mean lovely for my family, courtesy of the kindness of these neighbours because we get crumbles and baked goods out of their apples for free ^.^
Even after I made an 8 portions Apple Crumble (!!) I still had 3 apples leftover, and since Adelyn keeps very seriously saying “MUFFIN” at me, I figured I’d whip together some Apple & Sultana muffins (inspired by the BBC’s) as an Autumnal variation on our usual Banana muffins!
Enjoy the warm, homey smells of freshly baked cinnamon, appley goodness.
- 200g self-raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 50g wholemeal flour
- 100g golden caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 125ml milk
- 4 tbsp sunflower oil
- 2 apples, peeled and grated (I used Bramley). Give a little squeeze so it’s not TOO juicy
- 100g sultanas
Preheat your oven to 180C (160C Fan) and line a 12-muffin tin with muffin cases.
In a big bowl, combine the dry ingredients; the self-raising flour, baking powder, cinnamon, wholemeal flour and sugar – give it a good mix together.
In a jug (or another bowl), beat the milk, eggs and oil together. Add this to the dry ingredients bowl and mix well.
Stir in the grated apple and sultanas and give it one last good stir.
Carefully spoon the mix into your prepared muffin cases and bake for 25 minutes until golden on top.
