Apple muffins





I was contacted by the lovely people at flora to see if I wanted to try out their Flora Cuisine.  I was sent a recipe book and ingredients and asked to make apple muffins on page 49.
I was really pleased with the choice as I love baking with apples especially at this time of they year.  These muffins are really quick and easy to put together and tastes delicious! I love the combination of apples and cinnamon and may consider adding in nuts and or raisins next time.

Flora is currently offering readers a chance to win a copy of Let's Get Cooking and a week's worth of delicious dinners for a family of four.  To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is to choose a dish from their cookbook which is available to download for free from their website and submit a recipe review in one of the following ways:

  • Follow @OfficialFloraUK on twitter and tweet a bite sized review using the hashtag #CookbookComp
  • Find the recipe on the Flora website and leave a review in the comments section below it. Then drop a quick email to flora@tmw.co.uk so they can contact you if you win. 
All the recipes in their book is suggested by mums and dads on Facebook. I love using the Flora cuisine as there was no need to soften butter especially in this weather! I leave my butter out to soften but after a day it's still quite solid! 

 This is the recipe I was asked to make 

 Ingredients I received and the cookbook

 Mix Flora Cuisine, flour, sugar and cinnamon

 Add chopped apples at the end 

 delicious and moist!

    1. Oh I do love my butter especially for buttercream and Victoria sponge. This is ok for everyday bakes and particularly bake sales as butter is getting really expensive :(

  3. I'm dubious about it still. Why do we need it when regular flora works just fine. What's in the ingredient list that makes it runny? Muffins look nice though so there's a bonus!!

    1. I have to admit I didn't look at the ingredient list. The muffins tasted good tho! If its a proper buttery bake, I'd use real butter!
