Baking with Kids | Apple & Sultana Muffins

Boy mixing muffins ingredients in a bowl

Apple & Sultana muffins in their casesOkay, so my last post in this series was also a muffin recipe – read: 5 Ingredient Banana Muffins – but Alfie was adamant he wanted to make muffins again, and this time an apple version. I’m not sure where he had seen these, or if he had even eaten them before, but I bought plenty of apples in Tesco, so thought why not? The recipe was a bit of a mixture of all different recipes, and we threw some sultanas in too, as Alfie loves them (even though we call them raisins).

This is a really easy recipe to follow, and you could be more organised than me and get everything weighed and prepped, ready for little hands to pour in. That said, Alfie enjoyed using the scales and counting as the numbers increased. He also enjoyed eating the apple wedges, while I was trying to grate them.

This recipe makes 12 muffins


  • 100g golden caster sugar 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 75ml olive oil (I used light) 
  • 150g apples, cored and grated (I used gala apples, as they’re ‘Alfie’s apples’, but you can use whatever eating apples you have lying around) 
  • 100g self-raising flour 
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 100g sultanas


  • Preheat your oven to 170C fan or gas mark 5, and line a muffin tin with cases. I used my silicone ones as I think they work better than paper ones 
  • Whisk the eggs and sugar together in a mixing bowl. Add the oil and mix further 
  • Stir in the grated apple, followed by the flour, and cinnamon. Add the sultanas and continue to mix, until all combined 
  • Divide the mixture between the 12 muffin cases. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or once they are golden brown or springy to the touch 
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes in the baking tray, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely

These muffins will keep in air-tight container for up to five days… if you can let them last that long! Perfect for a mid-morning snack, they are delicious and so fruity.

If you or your little one/s like raisins, you’ll love this post – also in the Baking with Kids series – read: (Moon) Rock Cakes.

As always, if there’s anything you’d like to see on here (that’s easy to do with a three-year-old), please let me know and I’ll add it to our list.
