How do you make Apple Banana Carrot Muffins?

For this recipe we use typical cake ingredients – butter or margarine, sugar, eggs, self raising flour, a few spices to flavour the bake and the fruit and vegetables.

Although we use soft brown sugar for this recipe, you can use granualated sugar or golden caster sugar without any issues. You can also use plain flour or all purpose flour with a little baking powder or baking soda if you want instead of self raising flour.

We use a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger to flavour these cakes and you can use any type of apples you like. Overripe bananas work best in this apple banana carrot muffin recipe.

These apple carrot banana muffins freeze well and keep well in an airtight container for a few days. You can also make them bigger or smaller – and it’s a great recipe to double up and make more of. Plus, if you leave out the sugar they make great baby muffins for weaning – we used to make mini muffins and freeze them when we were weaning the children.
