Apple and cinnamon, possibly one of my favourite combinations. Not to mention that these duffins don't take a lot of time at all to make. Inspired by my favourite ones from Bea's of Bloomsbury, these are perfect for the colder months. Best served fresh from the oven with a large steaming mug of coffee.
Cinnamon apple duffins (doughnut muffins)
(Recipe adapted from Sweet Treats & More, makes 12 mini or 6 large)
230g plain flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
80g unsalted butter, softened
110g soft light brown sugar
1 large cooking apple, peeled and grated
65ml whole milk
Cinnamon mix for coating:
50g golden granulated/soft light brown sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
Heat the oven to 190 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the butter, roughly. Whisk the egg, milk and grated apple together. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Pour into a well greased muffin pan. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes.
For the sugar coating, melt the butter in a small bowl. In another bowl mix the cinnamon and sugar together. When the duffins are cooked, dip each individually in the butter and then the sugar mix to coat.
