Apple and ginger muffins

After the success of my previous blueberry muffins it was a must to bake more muffins. This fitted well, because near my house the apple trees were in their season to give me the best apples I've ever eaten. So, it was the perfect combination of muffins with apples. To make it more fancy, I have decorated them with one or two blueberries.

I was a bit in a hurry when I have done the recipe and I forgot one spice: cinnamon. The original recipe was requesting for it, but I simply forgot and the muffins turned out to be very good like that as well. If you want cinnamon anyway, add one teaspoon to the bellow listed ingredients.

  • 6 apples (medium size, unpeeled and diced)
  • 200g yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of ginger powder
  • 200g all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • a pinch of salt

  1.  Mix the eggs with sugar until they whiten a bit.
  2. Add yogurt and mix.
  3. Add slowly the flour, baking powder, ginger and salt and mix.
  4. Add apples and mix gently.
  5. Pour the composition into cupcake cases 3/4. They will not grow very high. I arrived to have 21 muffins.
  6. Bake at 180ºC for 45 minutes.
