littletree bakes...toffee apple muffins



So yesterday I teased you with a sneak preview of these Toffee Apple Muffins and I promise they do not disappoint! They are possibly even better than the Nutella Muffins I baked a few weeks back...and I am a BIG Nutella fan so that says alot!

The idea for these came about when I had one stray (past it's best) apple, half a packet of fudge plus my desire for something slightly spicy and autumnal to scoff with a warm glass of apple juice one afternoon...and so the Toffee Apple Muffin was born! Ok, enough rambling from me, here's the recipe...


Ingredients
  • 9oz Self Raising Flour
  • 1tsp Baking Powder
  • 4oz Caster Sugar 
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 3 fl oz Vegetable/Sunflower Oil
  • 5 fl oz Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Large Apple
  • 8-10 Fudge Chunks

Let's Bake!  
  • Preheat your oven to 190-200c and line a 12 hole muffin tin.
  • In a large bowl combine the Flour, Baking Powder, Sugar, Salt and Cinnamon. Stir until well combined.
  • In a separate jug measure out the Oil, Milk and add in the Egg, give a quick whisk to combine.
  • Chop the Fudge chunks into small pieces, put aside. Chop the Apple into roughly similar sized chunks to the fudge, put aside.
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add your Oil, Milk and Egg mix. Stir until just combined.
  • Now add in your Fudge and Apple, stir a few times to evenly distribute the chunks of goodness...this is a thick batter but remember the apple will release moisture during cooking.
  • Divide the mix equally between the muffin cases and pop in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden.
  • Leave to cool on a wire rack and resist if you can!

Optional Brown Sugar Cinnamon Glaze
  •  3oz Icing Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Brown Sugar
  • A Pinch of Cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and gradually add hot water a teaspoon at a time and stir until the brown sugar dissolves. You want a runny liquid that's easy to drizzle over the cool muffins and makes them super sticky!



I really hope you try this one, they are super scrummy!x

  2. Please send some my way?! They look seriously good, thanks for the recipe. I might have to give these a go this weekend (although as a coeliac I will have to swap the flour for gluten free flour, but I'm sure they'll still work!)
