While he was out at work, Graham (hubby) was given a whole lot of Granny Smith apples by a generous farmer. I've made apple and blackberry crumble and an apple shortcake, plus this morning apple nut muffins, recipe below:
2/3 cup apple juice or milk
1/2 cup veg oil (I use Grapeseed)
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbspn baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I use pecan)
1 chopped apple
*cinnamon sugar to dust prior to baking
Mix wet ingredients together. In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients, add wet and then the apple and nuts. Mix gently until mixture moist, do not overmix or muffins become tough.
Put into oiled muffin pans, dust with cinnamon sugar and bake for about 15mins at 200 deg C.
* Blend 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon with 1/4 cup granulated sugar.
