Toffee apple muffins

Delicious toffee apple muffins with a gooey centre – great for those cold evenings

2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten

80g/2¾oz caster sugar

240ml/8½fl oz milk

100g/3½oz butter, melted

300g/10½oz plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

pinch cinnamon

2 eating apples, peeled, cored, finely chopped

200g/7oz shop-bought toffee pieces

I made these muffins for a bonfire night party and they went down a treat.  The toffee stays soft and gooey which makes them even more delicious.  They are so easy to make and would definitely recommend.  I doubled the recipe as I wanted the muffins to be quite big.

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/380F/Gas 5 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases.
  2. Mix the eggs, sugar, milk and melted butter in a large bowl. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon into the bowl. Stir well to combine.
  3. Add the chopped apple and lightly mix.
  4. Using half of the mixture, quarter-fill each of the muffin cases with the mixture and top with a few pieces of toffee. If you use too much toffee it will spill out of the muffin.   Cover with the remaining filling so the cases are half full.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes until well risen and golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Serve warm or cold.
