Breakfast muffins with apples and raisins

4 Mar


You should know by now that I am a very versatile woman. I don’t just throw dinner parties, I also throw breakfast parties. Rock’n’Roll! :)

So I had friends round for a nice big breakfast including Vietnamese weasel coffee (Seriously yum!) and a little something  I couldn’t resist to bake:

The photo is not overwhelming, and neither is there any baked gore. Hope you’re not too disappointed. (The time will come again!)

I have promised to blog more, and I think this is a very nice recipe if you want to bake for a small crowd and if you have little time and/or a students’ kitchen, i.e. one without good scales or an electric mixer. Hence this post!

Breakfast Muffins with Apple and Raisins

Ingredients (makes six muffins)
1/2 big apple
4 tbsp raisins
5 tbsp milk
1 dash ground cinnamon
4 tbsp sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp Golden syrup
5 tbsp oil
6 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 – 4 tbsp rolled oats
1 tbsp sour cream

Peel, core and grate half a big apple. Mix the grated apple with the raisins, the cinnamon and the milk. Look at the contents of your bowl and think to yourself that this looks waaaay too healthy. Therefore, set this one aside, take a new bowl and start with the sugar. Mix it with the egg and the Golden syrup. Marvel at the sugary goodness in your bowl. You may want to add the oil at this stage as well to compensate for all the fruity and oaty healthiness you are having to deal with for these muffins. Then add all the rest of the ingredients on your list. Stir well. Finally, add the apple-raising-milk mixture and give your muffin batter one last stir. You don’t need a hand mixer for this, just use your big wooden spoon and your manly man muscles. :)
Fill the batter into 6 holes of your muffin tin, which you have previously lined with muffin liners. (Don’t you just hate it when they do this in recipes? Can’t they just tell you the steps in their correct chronological order!?) Bake at 175°C for roughly 25 minutes. Nom.
