Now to make the cupcakes:-

Cupcake ingredients:

125 grams / 4oz soft brown sugar
(I didn't have enough soft brown sugar, so I added a little demerara sugar to make up the quantity)
200 grams / 7oz self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 or 3 Large Bramley Cooking Apples (or any Cooking Apples)
1 medium-size lemon
2 Medium / Large Eggs
100 grams / 3.5oz unsalted butter. (Chopped/Cubed)

1. Place the Self Raising flour, baking powder, cinnamon and brown sugar into a large mixing bowl put to one side.

3. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into a small bowl or lemon juicer.

4. Peel the cooking apples (I used 2 and a half apples) and then grate them into a separate bowl, there will be grated apple and juice produced from the grating, this is fine (avoid grating all the way to the core, if you prefer you can core them first).

5. Now pour the lemon juice in with the grated apple/juice and stir together.

9. Use a spatula to combine all the ingredients together, ensuring that all the flour has mixed in thoroughly, once combined I gave it a quick ten-second blast with the whisk to ensure everything was fully mixed.

10. The mix will look like rice pudding/porridge I then scooped out the mix into the cupcake cases using an ice cream scoop as this ensures you have even cupcake sizes.

11. Once all the mix has been put into the cases, then sprinkle the crumble mix over the top.

12. Place the cupcakes in the middle of the oven and cook for approx 25-26 mins or until golden brown, I turned them round in the oven halfway through for an even bake.
