Winter Recipe: Apple And Custard Muffins

Back to Downtime

These scrumptious treats from Adele Trathan are delightfully indulgent!


  • 250ml (8½fl oz) semi-skimmed milk
  • 90g (3oz) butter, melted
  • 250g (9oz) self-raising flour
  • 150g (5oz) plain flour
  • 200g (7oz) caster sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 80ml (3fl oz) ready-made thick custard
  • 80g (3oz) canned apple pie mix
  • 2 small apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon



Step 1

Preheat the oven to 190C (375F, Gas Mark 5). Line some muffin pans with paper muffin cases to make approximately 20 muffins.

Step 2

In a large bowl add the butter, plain and self-raising flour, caster sugar, cinnamon, egg and milk and stir until it has just combined. Do not over mix.

Step 3

Evenly spoon half of the mixture into the muffin cases until approximately half full. Make a well in the centre of each muffin mixture and drop in 1 heaped teaspoon of apple pie mix and 1 heaped teaspoon of custard.

Step 4

Add the remaining mixture to the top of each muffin and roughly smooth the tops with the back of a teaspoon dipped in warm water.

Step 5

Top each muffin with 2 or 3 slices of fresh apple. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over each muffin.

Step 6

Bake for approximately 25 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature with extra custard if desired. What a sweet treat!
