Distractions aplenty

Light And Fluffy Apple Muffins

For the past few weeks I have been searching for the perfect muffin to have for a quick breakfast. I have baked several failed attempts and was losing all hope until a couple of days ago when I came cross a recipe for Fluffy Apple Muffins.

They are unlike any other muffin I have ever tasted and are somewhat of a cross between muffin and scone, but in the most amazing way possible. Trust me, it works. And it is delicious! The texture is unbelievably light and fluffy and tastes surprisingly buttery, the chunks of apple are wonderfully soft and the slight hint of ginger takes them to a whole other level.


75g butter
50g golden caster sugar
50g caster sugar
225g plain flour
3 tsps baking powder
pinch of salt
225ml buttermilk
100g granny smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped (into about sweetcorn sized chunks)
1 tsp ground ginger

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a muffin tray with 8 paper cases
  • Cream the butter and both sugars together until smooth
  • Add in the flour, baking powder, salt, ginger and buttermilk and stir until combined
  • Fold in the apples until spread throughout the mixture
  • Spoon into the paper cases and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and risen
  • Remove from the tray and place on a wire rack to cool

    These muffins look so good! I am in the US and I’ve never seen measurement ‘g’ for cooking. I assume this is gram? This is a weight and not volume measurement, right? lol sorry! I’m wanting to make some treats for my sis and her hubby that just brought home a new baby and I’d love to make these 🙂
