Lovely texture. I used a cooking apple, some dried apricots and some rye flour in place of the 2 apples, sultanas and wholemeal flour.

Made these almost exactly as the recipe apart from swapping cinnamon with vanilla essence. They were super easy and quick to make. They are on the healthier side as far as muffins go, and for me could be sweeter. I did sprinkle some Demerara sugar on before baking with gave a lovely crunchy topping

Made for 1st time today and great success. Swapped grated carrot for the sultanas and worked really well.

Great recipe. Used a bit more apple and cinnamon (because I adore the flavor) and used 150 gr all-purpose flour + 100 gr wholemeal flour + 2 tsp baking powder. Instead of 125 ml milk, I used 80 ml milk + 45 gr full fat yoghurt. Flexible and easy recipe .. will for sure bake it in the future. Indeed lovely with some runny honey on the top.

Brilliant recipe idea! I started making it and realised that I didn't have all the ingredients, so I substituted the following: 1. Wholemeal flour+2 tsp of baking powder (instead of self-raising). 2. Wholemeal spelt flour instead of wholemeal wheat 3. 1 little pot of yogurt instead of the oil (only had olive and I didn't want the flavour) I also added: 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cardamom powder, pinch of nutmeg; dried blueberries mixed with the sultanas; pinch of salt; almond brittle sprinkled on top. Made them into mini-muffins, the recipe made 32!! Extremely easy, fluffy, delicious. My 4 years old inhaled three of them for afternoon snack. My work mates devoured the others the next day. Stole another commenter's idea and served them with warm apple sauce. Next time, warm with vanilla ice cream, home made custard, caramel sauce...endless possibilities!

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.

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