Apple and Blueberry Muffins

apple and blueberry muffin kids leftovers muffins kids snacks homemade baked goodies

If you’re the mummy of small children then I bet you end up with leftovers all the time. Or worse you have fruit going bad in the bowl or fridge. This morning I had both…apple and blueberries.

There was cut up apple – the boys didn’t touch. A massive punnet of blueberries close to being on the turn. I also have a toddler on a growth spurt who’s eating everything in sight but when he gets home from nursery not first thing.

The plate of leftovers looked like such a waste. I wondered if I could re-hash my banana muffin recipe to accommodate some apple and blueberries.

 

Apple and Blueberry Muffins Recipe 

Ingredients:

75g melted butter

50g dark muscovado sugar

65g caster sugar

250g self raising flour

1tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 apple (grated or cut up into very small pieces)

1 small punnet of blueberries or half a big one

2 medium eggs

125ml milk

 

 

  1. Heat the oven to 190C/Gas 5. Pop the muffin cases into the tin. I spray the cases with frylight to stop them from sticking
  2. Melt the butter, 30 seconds in the microwave is normally enough
  3. Grate or chop the apple in my case I took apple chunks and chopped them into tiny pieces
  4. Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl (flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarb, cinnamon and nutmeg)
  5. Beat the eggs, vanilla extract, melted butter and milk with a fork. Add the fruit and stir
  6. Pour the wet mix into the bowl, stir roughly without over mixing
  7. Spoon the mixture into the cases
  8. Bake for 20 to 25mins you will know the muffins are done by poking the muffins with a skewer if it comes out clean they’re done
  9. Rest the muffins for 5 mins on a wire rack and then remove and leave on the rack for another 5 mins before serving
