I always think that it is much easier to make muffins than making cakes although their texture is different.
It is my first time to make this apple, carrot and coconut muffins. The recipe is adapted from the book " Muffin Galore" ( Catherine Atkinson ).
The combination of these ingredients makes very moist muffins. The actual recipe makes 12 muffins but I only make half of these.
( All dry ingredients - mixed well)
Apple, Carrot and Coconut Muffins :
75 g plain wholemeal flour
75 g white flour
50 g brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp cinnamon powder
100 g carrot ,finely grated
100 g dried apple, chopped ( I used fresh apple)
30 g raisin, chopped
25 g walnut , chopped
50 g flake coconut
Wet ingredients: ( I have made some changes here as I didn't have buttermilk )
The actual recipe needs 63 ml buttermilk , 63 ml milk 1 egg and 1 tsp vanilla extract)
I substitued the above ingredients as below :
50 g melted butter
70 ml milk
1 slightly beaten egg
1 tsp vanilla extra
1. Preheat oven to 180 C/ 350 C Gas mark 4. ( I used 190 C as I thought that this muffin is quite moist and it needs higher temperature ) . Grease a 6-cup muffin tin with paper muffin case.
2. Mix dry ingredients + wet ingredients , mix briefly until just combine.
3. Baking time : 25- 30 mins .
Voila ! My tea time : A cup of tea and an apple, carrot and coconut muffin, yummy !
