  8. Divide the batter evenly into the muffin tins. Gently press any desired toppings into the top of the muffins before baking.
  9. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 20 - 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean, and the top is lightly golden.

Really nice and moist muffins for breakfast! I used grated apple instead of minced, which worked well. I had to bake the muffins at 200 degrees Celsius for 25 min (due to moist from the grated apple I guess), but it was worth it😋 They got a nice caramelised flavour, and the combination with cinnamon is a winner. I’ll consider however to add cardamom as a “flavour buddy”.
The sole disadvantage with this recipe is that a muffin isn’t sufficient for breakfast😂. Blueberries are good complement!

Thank you for sharing, Louise! Indeed grating the apple would add some moisture. We love the idea of adding cardamom and serving the breakfast cups with blueberries 😍
