How to make apple and cinnamon muffins

Your rating: None
Apple and cinnamon muffins are delicious autumnal treats, especially eaten hot from the oven. They are also quick to make. Why not try the following mouth-watering recipe?
What you'll need: 
240 ml milk
1 tbsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
55g butter
85g soft brown sugar
2 eggs
285g plain flour
1 dessert apple
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Muffin cases & tin, saucepan,mixing bowls, wooden spoon and fork
Set the oven to 200 degrees C (gas mark 6).
Melt the butter in a saucepan and let it cool for a while.
Use a large bowl as your 'dry bowl'. Sift in the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Stir it together with the wooden spoon.
Using a fork,or whisk, beat the eggs in your smaller 'wet bowl'. Pour in the milk and whisk further.
Stir the melted butter into your 'wet bowl'.
Peel and cut up the apple into small chunks. Add it to your 'dry bowl' along with the contents of the 'wet bowl'.
Use the wooden spoon to beat all of the ingredients together.
Place your muffin cases in the muffin tin and spoon a little amount into each case - they will rise in the oven.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Check your muffins. If they are firm and golden brown they are ready to take out. Leave them to cool a little.
Although it is best to eat them straight away, muffins will keep for several days in the fridge and can even be frozen.
Younger children should not be permitted to use the oven.
