Wholewheat Apple Muffins

Yesterday I made these delicious muffins...is that why I ate 3??? I got the recipe from a blog, unfortunately I can't find the blog again.

Just as well I saved the recipe :o)




Whole Wheat Apple Muffins

Yield: 12

1 1/4 cup (4 ounces) whole wheat flour
1 cup (4 1/4 ounces) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick, 4 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed, divided
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk or yogurt
2 large apples, peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Grease and flour 12 muffin cups and set aside.
Mix together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and set aside.
In a separate bowl, cream the butter, honey, and 1/4 cup of the brown sugar. Beat until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well; stop once to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl. Mix in the buttermilk gently. (If you over-mix, the buttermilk will cause the mixture to curdle.)
Stir in the dry ingredients and fold in the apple chunks.

Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, sprinkling the remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar on top. Bake for 10 minutes {on the top rack}, turn the heat down to 400°F, and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool the muffins for 5 minutes in the tin, then turn them out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes: I didn't have any buttermilk or yoghurt, so I used skim milk...they were still yummy!!!

  2. Let me know what you think of the recipe.

    I'm just about to eat another one with a cup of tea! I reheat them in the microwave as they are much nicer warm :o)
