One of the best things about autumn, besides the crunching of leaves underfoot, breathtaking fiery sunsets, and cosy nights snuggled up indoors under mountains of blankets, has undoubtedly got to be the delicious food and drinks the season has to offer.
Here’s a wonderfully warming autumnal muffin recipe that is sure to become a firm favourite.
The abundance of apples during the autumn makes them a fantastic addition to sweet treats, particularly when mixed with warming autumnal spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. What a dream team!
This recipe makes a total of 24 muffins at approximately 22 pence per serving, making them a cost effective snack or breakfast option (I love having mine with a hot cup of hazelnut latte).
