This week was half term so we needed a couple of fun activities to keep the kids entertained whilst they were at home.
So guess what?! We did some more baking!
We used the same recipe we used here but tweaked it with a couple of changes to the ingredient list.
160g self raising flour
2/3 tsp baking powder
2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped up
2/3 teaspoon cinnamon
2 dashes of apple juice
2 medium/large eggs
70g sugar plus 1 tsp sugar
1. Put the chopped apple, cinnamon and tsp sugar into a bowl with a splash of apple juice and microwave for 2 minutes
2. Rub the flour, baking powder and butter together.
3. Lightly beat the eggs
4. Add the eggs, splash of apple juice and half of the apple mixture to the flour and mix well.
6. Add half a teaspoon of the apple mix to the top of the muffin cases
7. Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for approximately 15 minutes.
This recipe produces a lovely, springy muffin with the added bonus that there is some fruit hidden inside as well as the baked apple on the top.
They were very popular with my children and with my work colleagues as well and were all devoured within a day – which rarely happens when we bake- although having said that I rarely share them out at work!!
