Apple & Cinnamon Muffins

You know how sometimes you just need a really easy and really yummy muffin recipe? Well these Apple & Cinnamon Muffins are the answer to all your muffin dilemmas.

Apple & Cinnamon Muffins

These are seriously moist muffins. I’m telling you – there’s no dryness happening whatsoever. Nope, just deliciously moist muffins all round. And that is perfection when it comes to muffins!

Apple & Cinnamon Muffins

So why are these muffins so darn good? Well first of all, the grated apple gives them a beautiful flavour BUT it also keeps them deliciously soft and moist. Did I mention how moist they are?

PLUS they’re made with buttermilk – which really is the key to yummy muffins. But don’t worry if you don’t have any buttermilk lying around (and can’t be bothered making a trip to the supermarket)… simply add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to a cup of plain milk, give it a stir and leave for a few minutes. Yep, it really is that easy to make your own buttermilk.

I like to add a few extra slices of apple on top of the muffins. Not only does this make them look super pretty… it also reminds me of which muffin flavour they are if I freeze them. Oh yep! You can totally freeze these babies! Just wrap them in plastic wrap and place them into an airtight container for up to 3 months. When you feel the muffin urge calling, simply grab one out and allow it to defrost (either on the bench or in the microwave).

Apple & Cinnamon Muffins

These also make the perfect lunchbox treat. I’ve never known a little one not to love this classic muffin recipe – and that’s really saying something!

Love this recipe. I found the batter went a long way, made 12 big muffins and 12 mini muffins.
Is there any chance you can put the sugar component of the recipe in cup measurements instead of grams please?
