I found myself with a fruit bowl full of rather ripe bananas over the weekend and, as it was a little fresh to fancy a smoothie, muffins seemed like the obvious next choice.

Our family isn’t one for fancy, cream-filled cakes so I decided to keep it simple and take advantage of all the delicious apples in the fruit shop at the moment, so whipped up an apple cake. It was so well received that even after a big lunch my Nan went back for seconds!
