Apple Muffin Recipe

This easy Apple Muffin or Apple Cupcake recipe is delicious and so easy.  It is also a great recipe if you would like to do some baking with your children.  I make it with my two munchkins and they help me with everything except stewing the apples (I simply do that first).  For the printable click here.

RECIPE:

Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) - our oven is fan-forced, try 160 C (320 F) for a conventional oven.

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup of castor sugar
2 and 1/4 cups of self-raising flour
1/3 cup soft butter
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 apples

METHOD:

1.  Stew apples.
For those of you that haven't stewed apples before simply peel and slice apples (into thin slices).  Place in a large saucepan with around 1/2 a cup of water.  Boil until very soft checking on water level periodically to ensure it doesn't boil dry. 

2.  Mix all ingredients together
3.  Add Apples and mix
4.  Grease muffin tin (if necessary) and bake in muffin/cupcake tin for 25 minutes.  Makes 12 medium sized muffins.

If you are serving the muffins warm, they do stick to the cupcake paper a little.  Once they have cooled the paper will peel a lot easier (although they are delicious warm!).

This recipe is so quick and easy! We love it, I hope you do too! Enjoy!

Also don't forget about the $75 Shabby Apple giveaway happening at the moment.
