Cakey Bakey: Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

I do love a bit of baking. Mainly cupcakes or muffins - should probably branch out more often. But then , who doesn't love muffins? These are great autumn treats - just as the leaves are all falling, it's getting a bit cold and you're digging out your jumpers, mourning the death of summer.... all you need is a bit of cinnamon goodness to cheer you up.*

*apparently some people like autumn. Everything's dying and it's getting cold, I don't understand you. Must. Have. Sunshine.

I made these yesterday, and I must say, they're one of the best things I've made in a while. Eat them straight from the oven - the muffins are best warm and toasty! (Not straight from the oven.. you'll burn your hands.)

Here is the recipe, Rachel style:

Quite easy really, you only need one bowl and you basically shove all the ingredients in there. This recipe makes 6 but I doubled up 'cos.... well I wanted to.

Inside gooeyness. They're pretty moist so last for a while. Check out the apple pieces. Mmmm. Appley. The cinnamon/brown sugar topping is the winner really, goes all crystallized so you get a bit of crunch with the goo.

Let me know if you make these! :D

Also, while on the subject, I decided to start keeping all my recipes for cakey bakey goodness together in a hand written scrapbook. Hence why that recipe is written on nice paper; I've started going slowly through all the recipes that I usually use and writing them down, hopefully with most of them being illustrated. Some of them I'll probably just stick in from random scraps of paper I have lying around. Kind of for my benefit really but it'll be nice to have in the future.

There's this amazing chocolate roulade that my mum makes that I must steal.
