Lovely recipe. Used Bramleys instead of dessert apples but just added a bit more sugar, and substituted a finely grated carrot for the raisins. Worked well and great for lunch boxes.

Good recipe but could do with a pinch of salt.

Very nice muffins. I did not put sultanas but 4 apples instead of 2 . Light and fluffy muffins. My 4 year old ate 2 in one sitting and he is extremely fussy eater. This one is a keeper.

Muffins turned out great, although I used soft brown sugar in place of the caster sugar, and used oat flour in place of the wholemeal. Delicious warm out the oven with a drizzle of honey.

My friends and family love this recipe, we use a tiny bit more Apple that listed and wholemeal spelt flour instead of just wholemeal. For an extra treat it's yummy with some homemade apple sauce squirted in the middle.

Really like this recipe (although I did use a small (150g) pot of natural yoghurt instead of the milk). It made moist and fluffy Muffin perfect for a breakfast on the go or a packed lunch. I think it's worth mentioning (as its not mentioned in the recipe) that Muffin batter shouldn't be over-mixed, just enough that everything is incorporated. I used 2 big Braeburn apples in this and the Muffins were gorgeous!
I've also adapted the recipe to make Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins by leaving out the cinnamon and increasing the golden caster sugar to 125g, then adding 100g of frozen raspberries, defrosted, and coated in a little flour so that they dont sink when cooked, and 100g White Choc in place of the apple and sultanas.

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..

They turned out great & tasted great. jan

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!

I diced the apples into small cubes. This added a bit more texture to the muffin.
