  • These traditional apple muffins have a sweet apple flavour, a hint of cinnamon, and zing of orange.

    Porridge oats and full fat milk make these apple muffins dense and indulgent. These hearty muffins are perfect served warm as a snack or drizzled in custard for dessert. The cinnamon pairs perfectly with the apple giving these muffins a warming flavour.


    • 75g butter melted and cooled slightly
    • 175ml full fat milk
    • 85g porridge oats
    • 1 egg
    • 125g plain flour
    • 3tsp baking powder
    • 75g caster sugar
    • 1tsp cinnamon
    • 1tsp orange zest
    • 1 apple (Granny smith) peeled, cored and diced


    • Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. In a bowl mix together the butter, milk, egg and sugar.

    • In a separate bowl sieve together the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon and then stir in the oats (reserving a few to sprinkle on top of each muffin), apple and orange zest

    • Pour the wet ingredients onto the flour mixture and fold together as quickly as possible trying not to over mix (over mixing will result in a heavy muffin instead of a light one)

    • When everything is mixed together, pour the mixture into muffin cups , ¾ fill each one, sprinkle the reserved oats on top and bake for 20 -25 minutes until well risen and golden brown
