Annabel Karmel is a cooking with kids pro. Her easy recipes are not only delicious, they're also extremely easy to make with the kids. These apple and sultana muffins are a great way of getting them to eat more fruit, without them even knowing!


  • 125g butter, softened
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 200 ml milk
  • Quarter tsp salt
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1tbsp baking powder
  • Half tsp ground ginger
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 150g dessert apples, peeled and grated
  • 75g sultanas
  • A little Demerara sugar

When you press your finger lightly on the top of a muffin it should spring back slightly if cooked.


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6. Line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases.
  2. Measure all of the ingredients into a free standing mixer and whisk until combined. Spoon into the cases. Sprinkle with Demerara sugar. Bake for about 20 to 22 minutes until well risen and lightly golden.

Just made these... they looked and smelled divine but inside it was thick and not baked. All went to bin.


anyone know the nutritional values in these as trying to find points numbers for weight watchers

Just cooking now! Would be great if you could make some cakes/muffins lower in sugar, as I guess these have over 10g added sugar per muffins and isn't t the recommended daily amount of sugar for kids ages 4-8 12.5g per day...? it would be great to be able to add a lower sugar muffin into the kids lunchboxes, whereas these muffins could only be a rare treat if you're trying to stick to roughly 12g per day. Thanks.
