Apple Crumble Cup Cakes

Hi Guys,

Well back to school week 2 here in the west. I am trying to come up with a yummy muffin treat each week. I want them to be easy on the sugar, a bit special and quick to make I’m determined to make the most of thermy for school lunches. Last night we are had a roast pork for dinner. As I was peeling the apples for the apple sauce I got thinking about this weeks cup cakes. I figured I would use some of the apple puree and make them a bit fancy with a crumble on top. I would usually use a nut base with either walnut or macadamia for the crumble. I have made these nut free for the school room but you could easily exchange the flour for some almond meal and baking powder. The options are endless 🙂




250g Self Raising Flour

150g Butter

3 Eggs

150g Brown Sugar

200g Apple Puree**



60g Butter

100g Brown Sugar

60g Oats

20g Bread Crumbs (fresh – turbo blitz one piece of day old bread)

1 teaspoon of Cinnamon (Ground)

1 tablespoon Honey


  1. Add butter and brown sugar  into the TM bowl and cook for 5 minutes at 80 degrees on speed 1.
  2. Add apple puree to the TM bowl and mix on speed 3 for 5 seconds.
  3. Add remaining cake ingredients and mix to combine on speed 4 for 30 seconds.
  4. 1/2 to 3/4 fill cup cake or pattie cases with the cake mixture.
  5. Wash and dry Bowl ready for the crumble mixture.
  6. Add all crumble ingredients into the clean and dry bowl. Blitz 3 or 4 on turbo.
  7. Sprinkle evenly over all of the cup cakes.
  8. Bake at 180 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes (mini) and 15-20 minutes (regular size)


  • They probably didn’t rise quiet as much as I thought that they would. You can fill them up 3/4 full no worries.
  • You can switch the self raising flour to plain flour and 2 teaspoons of baking powder if you prefer.
  • After trying it I think I would add an apple cut into 1/4’s and cored into the crumble mixture to give it that extra burst of apple.
  • ** Apple puree was 3 apples peeled and cored. Blitz on speed 7 for 10 seconds. Add 10g water and cook on Varoma temp 7 minutes. Then puree on speed 9 for 20 seconds
