Apple Crumble Muffins

Hey everyone, I hope you are all well and excited for this festive season.

Although it’s been a strange year, Christmas is something I always look forward to every year. I love the festive season, Christmas films, food, family, work celebrations and everything else. These muffins are not Christmas related but definitely seasonal. I had the idea of combining the 2 together and was so surprised to see many recipes online. The crumble is nice and crunchy and the cake is so soft and the apples add more sweetness.

Recipe: Apple Crumble Muffin (makes 7)

Ingredients

110g self raising flour

65ml oil

95ml milk

1/2 egg (save the rest in a container in the fridge)

80g caster sugar

1 apple grated, squeeze out the juice

35g plain flour

55g oats

35g brown sugar

40g butter

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and place 7 muffin cases on a tray.
  • Place the self raising flour, oil, milk, egg, caster sugar and apple into a bowl and mix well. Evenly spoon into the cases.
  • Next use you fingers to rub in the flour, oats, sugar, butter and cinnamon. Add this crumble mix to the top of the muffin batter.
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the crumble is golden. The actual cake will look quite pale but it should be cooked.
  • Leave to cool completely before eating.

Chocolate Marble Cupcakes

Hey everyone, I hope your day has been well.

I’m posting a little late in the day but I felt like making something slightly indulgent but not too sweet and I decided on chocolate marble cupcakes. I love the combination of vanilla and chocolate together. These cupcakes are light, moist and they taste amazing. I even added a little chocolate icing on a few. Cupcakes are such a simple thing to bake and enjoyable for everyone.

Recipe: Chocolate Marble Cupcakes (makes 12)

Ingredients

125g butter

125g caster sugar

2 eggs

125g self raising flour

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp cocoa powder

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gar mark 5 and place 12 cupcake cakes on a tray.
  • Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until smooth.
  • Add the eggs one at a time mixing until well combined. Then sieve in the flour and mix.
  • Split the mixture, pouring 1/3 into a smaller bowl and mix in the cocoa powder.
  • To the larger bowl add the vanilla extract and mix well. Use a tablespoon to divide this mixture evenly between the cases.
  • Use a teaspoon to add the chocolate mixture to the centre of the cupcakes and use a cocktail stick too gently mix both mixtures. Do this until both mixture are used up.
  • Put the tray in the oven for 25 minutes until cooked right through.
  • Leave to cool before eating (or adding any toppings)
