Apple and Pecan Crunch Muffins


For muffin mix:
240g Plain flour
240g Caster sugar
1 Bramley apple (peeled and diced)
2.5 teaspoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda
240g Buttermilk
80g Melted Butter
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg

For topping:
3 Tablespoon plain flour
3 Tablespoon melted butter
60g Demerara sugar
100g Chopped pecans
¼ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 170C/340F/ Gas mark 5.
  2. To make the topping, combine the flour, melted butter, demerara sugar, chopped pecans and cinnamon in a small bowl until mixed well and set aside.
  3. Mix dry ingredients, eggs and buttermilk with a wooden spoon. Once mixed slowly add in the melted butter.
  4. Then add the diced apple and mix. Watch to not over mix the mixture to ensure the muffins rise!
  5. Divide the mix evenly into muffin cases (you should get between 8-12 muffins).
  6. Evenly spread the topping mix over the muffins and put in the oven for 35 minutes.
  7. Once baked, leave to cool and enjoy!
