I quite enjoy muffins, but haven't made apple muffins for years, so I did an internet search and discovered this recipe. The recipe appealed to me as it uses wholemeal flour, and contains other ingredients I would normally have stocked in my cupboard or pantry, so no special grocery shopping was required.
Before baking. Handy that there's no guess work as the muffin cups are just filled to the top with the mix. Obviously more practice is needed to ensure equality of size 😄.
The finished products. Due to the wholemeal flour used they are a tad denser than a white flour based muffin but, I feel, nicely light and moist throughout for a fruit muffin with a great flavour. I used Pink Lady apples.
I decided to grate the beetroot in the sink wearing rubber gloves to minimise the mess.
This mixture was more fluid than the apple muffins so a little easier to ensure equality in size.
PC commented that they are chocolatey enough and there is a mild sweet aftertaste that is not unpleasant. He tried 3 just to be sure! The texture is light and fluffy.
Both recipes are supposed to freeze well. More information on that at a later date.
After the preparation, baking and cooling (not too much cooling!) we decided to try them for afternoon tea with a cuppa.
Do you have a new or favourite muffin recipe that you use?
