Toffee Apple Muffins

With the British apple season now in full swing, we have come up with the perfect Autumnal treat for you to try!

Ingredients:

2 eating apples, pealed, cored and chopped into small pieces

1 tsp cinnamon

400g plain flour, sifted

1 tbsp baking powder

150g caster sugar

50g light muscavado sugar

2 eggs

75g butter, melted

284ml carton of buttermilk

100g toffees, chopped into chocolate chip-sized pieces

  • Line a muffin tin with 12 paper cases and preheat the oven to 200°C / 400 °F / gas mark 6.
  • Place the chopped apple in a bowl and sprinkle with the cinnamon - stirring to coat the apple.
  • Place all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  • Stir together the eggs, melted butter and buttermilk, then transfer to the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir together until just combined.
  • Slowly fold in the apple.
  • Divide about half of the mixture between the 12 cases and sprinkle equally with the toffee pieces, then use the rest of the mixture to cover the toffee pieces.
  • Bake for 20-25 mins until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool or eat warm with a large dollop of ice cream!
