Fall is a great season because you can do so many exciting things with apples. I was born in October and I love apples, naturally, I had to make some apples muffins.
The recipes comes from the Recipes for Young Adults, a cook book that belongs to my husband. I believe he was forced in high school to take a class.
– 425 ml flour
– 20 ml baking powder
– 4 ml salt
– 50 ml sugar
– 1 ml nutmeg
– 250 ml milk
– 1 egg
– 75 ml vegetable oil
– 5 ml grated lemon rind
– 175 ml peeled, shredded apples
Sift all dry ingredients into a bowl and set aside. Then combine milk, egg and oil in a separate bowl. Mix dry with liquid ingredients and fold in lemon rind and apples. The recipe says that the dry ingredients should be slightly damped by the liquid ingredients and the whole thing should be lumpy.
Grease a muffin pan and dust with flour or line with paper cups. Pretty fall patters would be appropriate but simple white ones will do as well. Finally, till the pan 2/3 full and sprinkle a sugar/cinnamon mix on top before bakeing for 25-30 min at 200°C.
Tip: The instructions about the dough being slightly lumpy and all don’t quite make sense to me and I don’t really do that. I usually combine everything very well so that I end up with a nice batter. So far my muffins worked out pretty good.
One of the things I do not quite understand with the Recipes for Young Adults is the measurement system they use. It says that it is the metric version, yet, they just milliliter for measuring dry ingredients. Usually one would use grams for dry ingredients. That makes much more sense anyway.
The apple muffins are enjoyed best when slightly warm of course. They are soft and slightly crunchy when you hit the apples. One of my favourite dessert by far.
