Muffins and brunch

For our Bakemasters post-run brunch, I made blueberry corn muffins and apple cinnamon crumb muffins, both from Two Peas and their Pod. The blueberry corn were good, but there I’m still on my quest to make the perfect muffin out of my two favourite flavours. The apple cinnamon crumb muffins on the other hand, were a-ma-zing (if you can picture that being said by Craig of Strictly Come Dancing). They’re moist and delicious and hearty – everything you want in a muffin, especially post-run. Check them out:



And the star of our show. Drum roll please…


Wanna make them too? Here’s the recipe. I modified from the original just a bit.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup natural yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups diced peeled apples (I used Pink Lady)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/8 cup oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbs melted butter

Here’s what you do:

  1. Heat oven to 190C (375F). Line 12 muffin tins with muffin cups.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in large bowl, wet ingredients in small bowl. Pour wet over dry and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined. Fold in apples. Spoon into muffin cups.
  3. Mix crumb ingredients with fork. Use hands to crumble over top of muffin cups.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Enjoy! Print recipe

    Looks delicious!! I love a hearty muffin with a crumb topping 🙂 Aren’t Pink Lady apples the best for baking? I think they’re the perfect combination of sweet and tart.

      I know. I’m all about the crumb topping! Pink Lady are my husband’s favourite apples, so we always have them around. You’re right they’re the perfect combo of sweet and tart with a good solid crunch. The worst is a mushy or mealy apple!
