With a glorious moist sponge centre, my delicious apple and raisin muffins are a great way to work through a glut of Bramley apples or eating apples from your garden. These fruity muffins also make a healthy snack for toddlers.
Not too sweet these muffins can even be eaten for breakfast. My husband often takes one on the train to work.
Of course these muffins can be made any time of year but they are even more delicious in the autumn when apples are crisp and juicy and can be picked straight from the tree.
