Apple & sultana muffins

muffin

I was given a huge bucket of apples a week ago and I’ve slowly been baking my way through them. I decided to make some apple & sultana muffins last night. They were bloody gorgeous!

  • 6oz self-raising flour
  • 3oz caster sugar
  • 3oz light brown sugar
  • 6 oz butter (room temperature)
  • 3 eggs (room temperature)
  • 1-2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1tsp mixed spice
  • 3 finely chopped apples
  • Handful of sultanas
  • Handful of broken up pecans

Pop the oven on 160°C Fan and put some muffin cases in a baking tin. Blend the butter and sugar together until thoroughly mixed and add the eggs one by one. Sieve and mix the self-raising flour into the mixture and add the chopped apples, sultanas and pecan pieces. Mix in some spices, go on your own judgement as you might be feeling more ginger than cinnamon on the day.

I always give it a bit of beating to add some air and then half fill the muffin cases with the cake mixture. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, although I check on them after 10 minutes and then every few minutes after. Check they are cooked by poking one of the muffins with a sharp knife, if it comes out clean then it’s ready. Dust with icing sugar, make a brew and stuff your face!
