Recipe: Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Hey there!

It's Sunday, it's late, I have an assessment tomorrow and I have only one thing on my mind:  


When stressed (or happy, or sad, or just generally) I bake. And what better to make than some warm, spiced apple muffins that can be whipped up in less than an hour? This recipe has no butter, so no creaming, and no waiting for ingredients to come to room temperature.

{I just want to apologise in advance for how bad the photo quality gets, one of the downsides to baking in the evening is that taking photos becomes a nightmare.}

-2 Cups self-raising flour (even though my grandfather is completely against it - he's a professional baker - sorry, Grandpa, it won't happen again!)
-1/2 Cup Greek-style yoghurt - nothing flavoured
-1/2 Cup milk
-1/4 Cup vegetable oil
-1 Cup sugar (I use brown sugar) 
-1 large egg
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
-1 large/2 small apples, peeled and grated
-pinch of salt
 and (for the topping)
-2 to 3 tbsp brown sugar
-3/4 tsp cinnamon

  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C/150°C fan-forced.
  2. Put the wet ingredients, the grated apple and the sugar into a bowl and stir until combined.
  3. Sift the dry ingredients together.
  4. This is the hard bit. Brace yourself...........Stir the wet and dry ingredients together (gently!).
  5. Spoon the mix into muffin cases, until 3/4 full.
  6. Mix together the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the batter.
  7. Pop into the hot oven and bake until done, or when a skewer comes out of each muffin, clean. Mine were done in about twenty-five minutes.
  8. Take out of oven (and this is fairly obvious) EAT!

You should get about 12 medium sized muffin out of this recipe. You can obviously frost these babies with icing, but I don't eat icing so having them plain is totally fine, too.
