  • Serves

    Cinnamon sugar
    1 tablespoon Chelsea White Sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    2 cups flour
    4 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 cup Chelsea White Sugar
    100g butter
    2 eggs
    1 cup milk
    1-2 diced apples (depending on the size of the apple)


    Prepare the cinnamon sugar: mix the Chelsea White Sugar and cinnamon together and set aside.
    Preheat the oven to 200°C. Spray or brush 12 non-stick muffin pans with butter or oil.
    To make the muffins, sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a mixing bowl. Stir in the Chelsea White Sugar. Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave (about 40 seconds on high) or in a saucepan.
    Beat the eggs and milk together. Pour the liquid mixture with the diced apples and melted butter into the dry ingredients. Gently stir with a spoon until just combined. The mixture should look a little lumpy.
    Spoon the mixture evenly into the pans. Use two spoons, take a spoonful of mixture with one spoon and use the second spoon to push the mixture into the pans. Sprinkle over the cinnamon sugar.
    Bake in the preheated oven for 15 – 20 minutes or until the muffins spring back when pressed lightly or a cake tester pushed into the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Leave the muffins in pans for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.

Will definitely be using this recipe over and over again - soooo easy!!!
My 7 year old grand-daughter can do it...

Made them in big texas muffin tin so only made six Instead of white sugar and cinnamon as the topping did brown sugar and cinnamon Moist and easy to make

Mmmmm very nice and easy. I only used one egg

Really easy to make and tasty. Great way to use up apples that are go9ng soft and the kids won’t eat them. I just used any type of apple left in the fruit bowl. Nice having chunks of apple through it!

Yummy muffins! Used our own sweet apples from our orchard. I doubled this recipe and used four medium sized apples. I read the reviews before baking and decided the apples also which came out well. Thanks

VERY Good. I cut back on baking powder and sugar, (no sweet tooth here) Thoroughly enjoyed end result.

It's cool and delicious.

I grated my apple and put half a cup extra flour and a bit less sugar in mine. So delicious!

Easy apple n Cinnamon muffins

Great recipe, but way too much baking powder! Makes the result taste a little soapy, so I would use 2.5tsp next time. Otherwise a very simple and great tasting recipe and I will definitely make these again!

Delicious. I used a freshly ground cinnamon quill and three diced Granny Smith apples. The best ever apple muffins

Love these cinnamon and apple muffins as they don't go dry at all its the best recipe and so easy. We add an extra teaspoon of cinnamon as its popular at our house.

Lovely recipe. My son really enjoyed it. I found having the apple diced tasted great. Next time ill try to grate the apple- as i have read on other reviews.

Best recipe I have come across. I double the batch and make 2 dozen and freeze a dozen for school lunches. Great Recipe!

I added a pear as well - halved the sugar and yummy

absolutely fantastic so lovely and moist I grated the apple but might try chopped next time many thanks for the recipe

Lovely moist muffin. I grated one and a half apples.

Really easy recipe and taste really good with a simple vanilla icing sugar glaze. I substituted 4 tsp of white sugar for brown sugar

really easy & the result is delicious
