I had 3 apples sitting in my fridge for ages and it seemed that no body wanted to have them so I thought I might as well used it to prepare some cakes. In fact, I have a few choices. One is to prepare an apple crumble pie as in this post: Small Appetite Foodie’s Apple Pie
Or I can prepared the Greek Apple Cake as in this post: Greek Apple Cake (Milopita) With Brown Sugar Walnut Glaze (希腊苹果蛋糕）
Then I thought since I never had an apple muffin recipe before, so I decided to design an apple muffin recipe.
When I posted in Chinese Facebook Group, one member remarked that the muffins look rough and she wonder how is the structure. I think she referred to the crumble on top of the muffins and I told her it is the crumbles on top of the muffins that differentiate these muffins with other recipes. On the contrary, my wife said that the rough crumble was delicious and demanded for more in my next attempt. Well, these crumbles are basically just pie crust or type of short bread, it complements well with the muffins and I myself like the crunchy crumbles.
Don’t doubt if these muffins are moist. Any bakes with fruit puree will definitely be very moist . However, freshly baked muffins tends to be drier and will become moister after it was placed on the table overnight. We finished all the muffins for two breakfast and there is no complain in the house at all.
WHAT IS REQUIRED
Servings: 6-8 muffins depend on size
- 150 grams of shredded apples
- 100 grams of melted butter
- 200 grams of self raising flour
- 150 grams of white sugar or brown sugar
- 50 grams of fresh milk
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
- 2 eggs
- 90 grams of plain flour
- 60 grams of cold cut butter
- 30 grams of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
STEPS OF PREPARATION
- Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
- Put all the crumble ingredients in a bowl. Use finger tips to rub the butter against the flour until it resemble coarse crumble form.
- Shred the apple, add the eggs, melted butter and milk. Use a tablespoon to stir until well mixed.
- In another dry bowl, sift the self raising flour, baking soda and cinnamon powder. Add the sugar, stir until well mixed and make a well in the centre. Add the apple egg mixture. Use a fork or flat bladed knife to swiftly and quickly mix the batter. Do not over mix and lumpy batter is acceptable. Fill the muffin cups with the batter until 75% full, top with the crumble and bake in the pre-heated oven of 180 degree Celsius for 20-25 minutes or when a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Another simple recipe and nothing to shout about. Do give it a try if you are an apple fan.
