Muffin Monday: Chunky Apple Muffins

Written & photographed by

This week’s recipe for Chunky Apple Muffins comes from none other than Ms. Martha Stewart, and to me this is the quintessential muffin.

The flavours are all balanced beautifully, the muffins gently spiced, tender and oh so moist. I must admit to doubling the amount of diced apple added to the batter – one granny smith just didn’t cut it for me. In the end I think the extra apple really dialed up the flavour of the fruit nicely, and in no way did it overpower the muffin.

Before topping the muffins with a thinly sliced sliver of apple (genius decorative detail Martha!) I dusted them lightly with a mixture of cinnamon sugar to give them a little extra sparkle.
