Apple Nut Muffins Recipe


Step 1:

You will need

  • ½ cup butter room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large apples
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp cashewnut (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp almonds
Step 2:

Preheat the oven
We need to set the oven to 400°F before beginning to make the muffins.

Step 3:

Mashed apples

Peel the apples and cut into small cubes. Then boil it in the hot water till it become soft and then mashes it with a spoon or with the blender.

Step 4:

Preparing dough

Cream butter and sugar with an electric hand-held mixer until light and fluffy.Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add apples and vanilla and beat until smooth. Along with this mixture, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder. Stir until dry ingredients are moistened then gently stir in chopped nuts.

Step 5:

Bake

Now put some of the batter into each of the muffin moulds using the spoon. Only fill them to about 2/3 of their capacity since the batter will rise while baking. Place the muffins onto a baking tray and put them into the oven. Allow to bake for about 15 -20 minutes.

Step 6:

Remove from oven

Once the muffins are done, take them out of the oven and let them cool a little before removing them from the moulds. Place them on a serving tray.

Step 7:

Serve

If you like, you can sprinkle the muffins with a little icing sugar. They taste best if you eat them while still warm. Enjoy!


Hint:

You can replace apple with your favorite fruit like bananas, strawberries. No need to boil it. Just mash it or grind it and add along with the mixture.
