Very good recipe. Good consistency, not dry or gooey. I did not have a wholemeal flour, so I added flax seeds instead, which is even healthier. I also used soft brown sugar and soy milk instead of semi-skimmed. | added chopped hazelnuts and topped them with pumpkin seeds as a decoration. Will make again.

I made these using natural plain yogurt instead of milk and I skipped the sultanas as my kids are not fond of them. The result was an amazingly soft texture. I would definitely be doing them again and I would recommend others to try them out!

I had no wholemeal flour so substituted it with a porridge mix of oats, oat bran and wheat bran. I also sprinkled Demerara sugar on the top :-)
I made 24 mini muffins and 6 cupcake sized ones.
Really lovely muffins that come out of the case cleanly too (so many muffins don't!) and really simple to make.

I believe that apple pips do contain cyanide! Perhaps a warning may be in order as I have seen some chop the apple and put all in to food blenders, juicers etc..

I'm on the hunt for tasty low fat options. These are delicious. I adapted the recipe slightly using mainly wholemeal flour and adding 1 extra apple and about 25ml milk which meant they were moist and fluffy. Great breakfast on the go which keeps you going.

Perfect as a breakfast muffin - left the apple coursely grated so it was lovely and moist. Added extra cinnamon too, which adds a bit more sweetness.

Good flavour but a bit dry. Needs adjustment to make it worthwhile, possible more apple to make it a bit more moist.

I used sweetened soy instead of milk but kept everything as per recipe. Really tasty, and quite a good size muffin. My children loved them.

Really nice with walnuts, I might add a little honey next time too!

This works really well as a loaf - I did it for 45 minutes at the same temperature, covered it, then gave it another 15 minutes or so. Really lovely and moist. Might add a shade more cinnamon next time.

Very nice! I would add some nuts, walnuts maybe.. or maybe poppy seeds, just to give it a crunch

Made with some apple & cinnamon bread flour and grapeseed oil instead of sunflower oil. These needed about 10 minutes additional time & slightly higher temp at the end but came out very nice. probably ended up more stodgy due to high gluten flour but very substantial and not dry either so a success I would say!
