- 250 g self-raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp Fairtrade ground cinnamon
- 1 large free-range British egg, lightly beaten
- 175 g Greek-style natural yogurt
- 4 tbsp vegetable oil
- 6 tbsp pure Canadian maple syrup
- 2 small green apples, finely chopped
- 100 g icing sugar
Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with 12 paper muffin cases.
Sift the flour, baking powder and most of the cinnamon into a large mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, yogurt, oil and 4 tbsp of maple syrup until smooth. Stir in the chopped apple.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, then pour in the liquid mixture. Using a fork, stir until just combined – don’t over-mix.
Spoon the mixture equally into the paper cases, then sprinkle the remaining cinnamon over the top. Bake for 20 minutes, or until pale golden and a skewer inserted into a muffin comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool.
Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and stir in the remaining 2 tbsp of maple syrup and 1-2 tablespoons water to make a smooth, runny mixture. Drizzle the icing over the cooled muffins using a teaspoon. Allow the icing to set before serving. The are best eaten the same day, or freeze for up to 1 month.
