Apple and Blueberry Muffins

Hi Guys,

 

Been a bit of a while since an update – Sorry! I have for you the next instalment in the school lunch box muffin. Whilst I was wondering around the world wide web I stumbled on a Donna Hay Blueberry Muffin mix. I took a little of my own need to get more fruit into it and from that we have the Apple and Blueberry Muffins. These were so yummy! They are great warm with a bit of fresh butter. mmmm!!! One thing about these is I am thinking next time I make them I may tweak them slightly! I am not a fan of so much vegetable oil but geez they are yummy! I also managed to get a couple of punnets of fresh blueberries on special this week so was able to use fresh fruit!

 

This batch made 12 full size muffins and 24 mini muffins.

 

INGREDIENTS:

2 Green Apples (Skin on Cored and 1/4’s)

2 Eggs

200g Raw Sugar

120g Vegetable Oil

130g Milk

1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

370g Self Raising Flour

200g Blueberries (fresh or Frozen)

 

METHOD:

  1. Add apples to the TM bowl and chop on speed 6 for 4 seconds. Scrape sides.
  2. Add all wet ingredients and mix on reverse + speed 3 for 20 seconds. (eggs / Milk / Vanilla essence / Oil)
  3. Add all dry ingredients except the blueberries and mix on speed reverse + speed 3 for 30 – 40 seconds until all combined. You may need to scrape sides.
  4.  Whilst thermy is on reverse + speed 3 add blueberries through the hole in the lid. Should take approx 30 Р40 seconds to be well combined.
  5. Divide evenly between muffin trays. You can use patty cases and either mini muffins or normal size. I filled the cases approximately 3/4 full. If you fill them to the top you will get a good rise and a nice big muffin top (the good kind!)
  6. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes for mini muffins and 15-20 minutes for the larger muffins. Check that the knife comes out clean when ready.

  TIPS:

  • Sprinkle a little raw sugar on top of each muffin before baking for a little extra something when baked!
  • You can substitute apple puree for the raw apple if you would like.
  • You could really mix this recipe up any way you like! You could use strawberries and apple or a mix of different berries. Almond meal for a gluten free version!
