Fudge, Apple and Chocolate Chip Muffins

Fudge, Apple and Chocolate Chip Muffins 

These moist and flavorful muffins are easy and quick like all our recipes. The apple pieces do not contribute hugely in flavour, but worth adding as they make the muffins wonderfully moist, plus they add a soft ‘crunch’ to the texture. Rigid muffin baking cups are great (available from most high Street stores), as they make the muffins easy to eat on the go / pack up for a picnic, plus there’s a little less work to do - no greasing or washing up of muffin trays!! 

As with all our recipes, tweak according to personal preference e.g. if not sweet enough, add extra sugar, if too sweet, add a little less, if packing muffins for a picnic on a hot sunny day, omit the chocolate chips (which could melt). Feel free to leave your own hints, tips and recommendations in the comments section.

Makes 5 large muffins, simply multiply up quantities for a larger number of muffins 


200g plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
50g butter (salted)
50g demerara sugar
50g Robins and Sons chocolate chips
1 large egg
150ml milk
1 small dessert apple – peeled, cored and chopped
60g vanilla fudge – cut into small cubes


Mixing bowl
Muffin tin and paper cases OR rigid paper muffin cups
Wooden spoon for mixing
Preheat oven to 2000C / 4000F
  1. Sieve flour and baking powder together and set aside (this is your dry mix)

  2. Heat butter on microwave ‘medium’ for 20 seconds bursts until completely melted, add sugar, mix thoroughly. 

  3. Add milk and egg to the butter / sugar mix, and mix thoroughly (this is your wet mix).

  4. Add the ‘dry mix’ to the ‘wet mix’ and mix thoroughly, it will remain fairly lumpy. Fudge apple chocolate chip muffin recipe 1

  6. Spoon into muffin cases. Fill the muffin case at least ¾ full. If using rigid muffin cups, place the cups on a baking tray before placing in the oven. Fudge apple and chocolate chip muffin recipe 3

  7. Bake on the middle shelf of a pre-heated oven for 25 minutes

TIP: When cool, run a palette or flat edged knife around the inside of the muffin cups and the cakes inside will release fairly easily.
