Apple and cinnamon muffins

Today simple, easy to make apple muffins. They are moisture, tasty, not too sweet, perfect for real muffin lovers. The recipe comes from 'Home baking cookbook'

Ingredients for 6 big or 12 smaller muffins:
  • 90g wholemeal flour
  • 70g plain flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 2 small apples
  • 125 ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 55g butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Wash the apples, peel off the skin, remove stones and chop them on smaller pieces. Set aside.
In small bowl mix  brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
Melt the butter in microwave.

Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.
Sift the flours, baking powder, salt, cinnamon together into large bowl and combine them. Add prepared earlier apples and sugar. In a separate bowl whisk egg, add milk and stir together. Pour wet ingredients into dry ones and stir until just blended. Do not over - stir the mixture it is fine for it to be a little lumpy.

Spoon the batter evenly into paper cases. Sprinkle each muffin top with sugar and cinnamon mixture. Bake for 20-25 min, until well risen and springy in touch. Leave the muffins to cool slightly in the tin then transfer to wire rack to cool down completely. Can be served warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Enjoy !
