Apple and Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins

I like recipes that are easy and this one is really easy to do, there is no creaming no kneading just mixing and putting into some muffin cases and there you have it.

Although the recipe works really well with cooking apples like Bramley Apples I’ve also made it with some from our fruit bowl the only one that isn’t as successful is granny smiths being a bit too tart and hard to melt into the muffin mix.

Up until last year we had an apple tree in our garden but moving away we couldn’t take it with us so whilst I plan our new garden I have an apple tree in a pot that I brought just so that I will have our own apples throughout the autumn to use in recipes


Got lots of apples – then try our apple and cinnamon loaf cake.

Top Tip for having Warm Muffins for Breakfast EVERY DAY

So these taste delicious slightly warm – but how can you get them warm every day?

Well it’s easy. I make up a couple of batches of these at once and freeze a batch. When it comes to the evening I get out the muffins let them defrost on the side and then for 5 – 10 minutes put them into a warm oven around 50 – 100C and let them warm up and then serve.

Perfect warm breakfast muffins every day of the week.
