Spiced Apple Muffins


These spiced apple muffins are very autumnal and perfect for Halloween, Bonfire parties and super easy to make. Sugar Spice and all things nice.


200g Dates

200ml milk

250 g butter softened and extra for greasing

280g self raising flour

200g light brown sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

4 large eggs

1 tbsp mixed spice

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 small red apples

Squeeze of lemon juice

Handful of toffees

Little icing sugar for dusting


  •  Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Place muffin cases into muffin tin. Put the dates and milk in a pan, and simmer. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 15 min
  • Mix the date mixture to a smooth purée in a food processor or blender, then scrape into a large mixing bowl. Add the butter, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, eggs, mixed spice and vanilla. Pop to one side while you prepare apples
  • Slice the apples quite thinly and toss in a little lemon juice.  Beat together the muffin mixture ingredients with an electric whisk until smooth, divide the mixture between the muffin cases and arrange the apple slices on top of each muffin. Bake for 30 – 45 mins until a skewer poked into the centre of the muffin comes out clean. Cool in the tray.
  • Put the toffees in a small pan with a splash of milk and gently melt, stirring, until runny.  Dust each muffin with icing sugar, then drizzle sauce over the muffins and serve.
