Recipe: Fruity Muffins

Today we baked some fruity muffins. I got the idea from an issue of Make and Bake with Peppa Pig magazine but I’ve tweaked it a bit by taking out the chocolate, adding in some extra fruit and not adding sugar to the oats that are sprinkled on top. Little people can help out with putting the cases in the tin, all of the mixing, putting the mixture in the cases and sprinkling the oats. All that you, the grown up, are needed for is all the bits that involve sharp knives and hot ovens. Here’s the recipe:


1 eating apple (weighing about 60g), peeled and chopped into very small pieces

30g sultanas (could use raisins or probably other kinds of dried fruit)

75g soft brown sugar

1 egg

75g self raising flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon mixed spice

10g oats

muffin cases

mixing wet ingredients

Add apple & raisins

Add flour & baking powder

spoon mixture into cases

sprinkle oats

7. Pop in an oven pre-heated to 180 degrees Celsius for 12-16 minutes. Mine took about 15.

8. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes in the tin before removing and leaving on a cooling rack for another 5-10 minutes.


These were easy to make and really yummy!

Happy baking everyone and thanks for reading!
