Divine White Chocolate Chunk & Apple Muffins! These one bowl muffins are soft, glorious and dreamy with those beautiful white chocolate melted chunks. I love to enjoy one of these with my morning tea or afternoon cuppa. 


  • 125g unsalted butter, melted 
  • 1 1/2 cups (230g) plain all purpose flour, use gluten free flour if preferred 
  • 1 tsp (3g) baking powder

  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster or granulated sugar, white or raw
  • 1 cup (270g) apple sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
