Apple Crumble Muffins

A while ago in Bake Club, we chose to make a recipe called “Spiced Apple Crumble Muffins”. They were yummy, but I felt the topping was a little too sweet, and just didn’t have enough texture.  I wanted more!  We often choose random recipes from the net, make them then alter them to suit. It’s fun, and you learn so much along the way. Now I’m satisfied.  😉 It’s not quite my Muffin recipe, but it’s still nice. You can also find out about my Artisan Muffins at the end of this page.

The recipe asked for Baking Powder and Self Raising Flour.  Not what I would usually do when writing a recipe.  I’ve made some alterations to the ingredients and adjusted the flour baking powder ratio, so you only have to use Baking Powder and Plain Flour.  That will give a more consistent result.

I love these Apple Crumble Muffins now, but hubby has never been a big fan of apple when it’s cooked.  So instead of apple, I’m going with raspberries for him.

Using different fruit in one muffin batch?

Leave the fruit aside and after dropping the batter into your muffin cases, sprinkle the fruit on top.  Grab a fork and gently poke them down a bit. Then pop the topping on as usual and bake.  Ta-Da, too easy, a whole batch of muffins with whatever fruit you want.  You could be really fancy and make them all different, ehhehe

These might be good for school lunches.  Freeze them as soon as they’re cool to lock in the moistness, and you’re on a winner.  Pull them out and pop them in their lunch boxes and they’ll be defrosted when its playtime, a surprise flavour each day.

For The Muffins:

  • 1 large egg

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180C fan.
  • Cut and core the apples then chop into cm cubes pop the apple pieces in a bowl with the lemon juice. Stir and set aside.

For the topping

  • You need to melt the butter there are a few ways you can do this I’ll add the TM instructions. Weigh the butter into the TM bowl and set to 37°c/5m/sp 1. Then mix on speed 3/3 secs
  • Weigh the remainder of the topping ingredients into the TM bowl and mix on reverse speed + 3/10 seconds and set aside.

For the Muffins

  • Weigh all the dry ingredients into the TM bowl and with the MC in place mix on speed 5/3 seconds and set aside
  • Weigh the butter into the TM bowl and set to 37° c/speed 2/5 mins. Then mix on speed 3/3 seconds.
  • Return the dry ingredients to the TM bowl along with the milk and eggs and mix on speed 3.5/10 seconds
  • Drain off the apple pieces and add to the TM bowl, mix on reverse speed + 3/4 seconds
  • Spoon into muffin cases
  • Sprinkle the topping mixture evenly over the top of the muffins (a rounded tablespoon works)
  • Bake in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes depending on the size of your muffin cases
  • They’re ready when you can press the top, and they spring back.
  • Cool on a wire rack

Notes

They are best eaten the day they’re made, but if you pop them in the freezer once they’re cold, you can give them a quick blast in the microwave to bring them back to brilliance.
