  • Apple crumble muffins made with apples, apple sauce, and blackberries. Prepare in just 10 minutes.

    Top each of these mouthwatering apple crumble muffins with homemade crumble topping. This recipe makes a batch of 12 muffins. Unlike our classic apple muffins recipe, these muffins are made with blackberries. Blackberries are perfect paired with Cox apples and they’re sharp and tangy.


    • 150g butter, at room temperature, plus a knob
    • 225g caster sugar
    • 250g self-raising flour
    • 3 medium free-range eggs, beaten
    • 100g apple sauce
    • 3 Cox apples, cored and cut into small chunks
    • 150g blackberries
    • For the topping:
    • 40g butter, at room temperature
    • 40g light muscovado sugar
    • 60g plain flour
    • 3tbsp rolled oats


    • Heat oven to 180C/gas 4. Line a muffin tin with 12 paper cases. Using an electric whisk, whisk together 150g butter, sugar, flour, eggs and apple sauce for 3 mins, until light.

    • Heat the knob of butter in a frying pan, add the apples and cook over a medium/high heat for 5-6 mins, until golden. Cool slightly before adding half to the batter. Fold in, then spoon into the cases, add a few blackberries to each and press in slightly.

    • Rub together the topping ingredients to a crumbly texture, mix with the remaining apples and scatter over the cakes. Bake for 35-40 mins, until springy to the touch. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
