There is nothing nicer than freshly baked muffins. The only difficult part of this recipe is the grating of the apples and carrots and a little arm muscle strength to mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon. Great muffins to serve with breakfast or a late morning Sunday brunch. Give them a try!

  • 500ml (2 cups) cake flour, sifted

  • 125ml (½ cup) chopped pecan nuts (optional)
