Toffee apple muffins - the best, easiest, versatile muffin recipe needed!?

My husband made tarte tatin for Valentines Day :) and it was great - now we're left with some extra caramelised apples which I think will be delicious made into toffee apple muffins. I'm looking for an easy recipe for plain muffins that I can just stir these pieces into - maybe not too sweet - and would like to use it again with other fillings. I'm in the UK. Thanks for your help!

    Toffee Apple and Honey Trifle

    20 servings

    34 min 30 min prep

    2 loaves poundcake (plain is best)

    6 apples, peeled and thinly sliced

    1/4 cup butter

    1 teaspoon cinnamon (or to taste)

    2 cups whipping cream

    14 ounces cream cheese

    1/3 cup honey

    1 box vanilla instant pudding mix

    1 bag hershey Skor English toffee bits (or Heath chips)

    Prepare the various layers of the trifle so they are all ready to assemble together.

    Slice the pound cakes down the middle length-wise, then slice each loaf into 10-12 slices, resulting in 20-24 cubes per loaf, a maximum of 48 cubes.

    Saute the apples in the butter until soft.

    Add the cinnamon and mix well to coat all the apple slices.

    In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the whipping cream, cream cheese, honey and vanilla pudding.

    Toss the Skor bits into the food processor and whirl until finely chopped.

    Now assemble the trifle in a large clear bowl with straight (ish) sides.

    This makes a large quantity so you may have up to three layers.

    First lay down a layer of cake cubes Then cover with the sauteed apples.

    Then cover with a generous layer of whipped cream.

    Then sprinkle with a layer of ground Skor bits.

    Repeat the layers until all the ingredients have been used up, ending in a layer of Skor bits.

    Note: I actually had more cake than necessary, so I had a layer of cake and cream in the middle before starting over with another layer of cake.

    Incredible Oat Bran Muffins, Plain, Bluberry or Banana

    is not very dense and is not too sweet, allowing the wonderful bran flavor through. This came off the back of a quaker oat bran hot cereal box. Only 120 calories per muffin!

    2 cups oat bran hot cereal, uncooked (I use Quaker)

    1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

    2 teaspoons baking powder

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1 cup milk

    1 egg

    1/4 cup honey or molasses (I haven't tried molasses yet)

    2 tablespoons vegetable oil

    *Blueberry or banana variations are at bottom.

    Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F. Line 12 medium muffin cups with paper baking cups.

    Combine dry ingredients. Add milk, egg, honey, and oil; mix just until ingredients are moistened.

    Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake 14-17 minutes or until golden brown.

    *NOTE: You can stir in 1/2 cup frozen blueberries or 1 medium ripe mashed banana for a fruity variation.

    These are also great the next day cold if you seal them in a baggy or stick em in a container to keep em fresh.
