Get Autumnal with our Delicious Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Heart of the Home Recipe Book - Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

It’s October; the month where the leaves turn red, the apples have well and truly fallen from the trees and we’re all craving something that just gives us a little bit of warmth and a good treat.


Enter, the apple and cinnamon muffin. We’ve looked to Nigella Lawson as inspiration for these beauties, but with our own little tweak. They’re tried and tested in our kitchen and with that autumnal scent of cinnamon wafting through the house, they certainly brought the family together for a treat and a chat.




Autumnal Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Makes 12



  • 2 – 3 eating apples
  • 250g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 125g light brown sugar (we used brown cane sugar)
  • 125ml honey
  • 60ml natural yogurt (or a dairy alternative)
  • 125ml vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • Demerara sugar and extra ground cinnamon for sprinkling



  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C / 180°C Fan and line a muffin tin with papers or reusable bun cases
  2. Peel and core your apples and chop into small cubes
  3. Add your dry ingredients to a bowl (flour, baking powder and cinnamon)
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar with the honey, vegetable oil, eggs and yogurt
  5. Carefully fold the wet ingredients into the dry, add the chopped apple and give it a good stir. As Nigella says, not too much as a lumpy batter makes for a lighter muffin!
  6. Finally, spoon the batter into the bun cases then sprinkle the demerara sugar and ground cinnamon mix on top before popping into the oven
  7. After about 20 minutes, remove from the oven and test your muffins are baked by spearing carefully with a knife – if it comes out clean, you’re good to go
  8. Set each muffin out on a cooling wire and try to wait a minute before tasting your gorgeous creations! Remember, one is never enough…
