Quick & Easy Apple Muffins

Just combine the ingredients and bake to make these delicious muffins. Even bland apples work fine.

Ingredients: Muffin pan or 18 cm round cake pan

◎Cake flour
150 g
◎Bread (strong) flour (or cake flour)
50 g
◎Baking powder
4 g
◎Baking soda (or baking powder)
2 g
◎Salt
a small amount
Eggs
2
Sugar
90 g
Vegetable oil
100 ml
Apple
1
Cinnamon
to taste
Chocolate chips (optional)
to taste

Steps

1. Combine the ◎ ingredients and sift twice. Finely chop the apple and sprinkle with cinnamon. Stir and set aside. Place muffin cups in the muffin pan. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
2. Combine the eggs and sugar in a bowl.
3. Add the vegetable oil and mix.
4. Stir the chopped apple into the sifted powdered ingredients.
5. Add Step 3 and mix.
6. Add the chocolate chips when the batter still has some flour streaks. If you are not adding chocolate chips, just skip this step. You could also add broken up pieces of chocolate.
7. Pour into the muffin cups and bake for 20-25 minutes.
8. The baking time will differ depending on the size of the muffin cups and the oven, so check to see if they're done by poking with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, they're done.
9. I made large muffins.
10. You can use any size muffin tins you want.
11. You can also bake this in an 18 cm round cake pan Bake for 40-45 minutes in an oven preheated to 180°C. I recommend chopping the apple into slightly bigger pieces for this.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love making these muffins whenever apples are in season.
These muffins are fluffy when freshly baked and moist when cooled.
