Apple Cinnamon Muffins

We rarely ever have visitors. One Sunday morning, a fellow blogger dropped by for a visit. We happen to live in the same complex and after a couple of phone calls, we had an impromptu meeting. I had nothing at all to offer her or her cute two-year old. I made these muffins in a hurry. I messed up a little while mixing the batter, but the muffins turned out just fine. Although I made these for the little one, I felt that the cinnamon made them very adult-like, and that maybe vanilla might have been a better option. Swapna told me that her daughter ate an entire muffin and also added that that was a big deal. So, I think I may have a keeper recipe here even if I just threw in everything I could find.


3/4 cup Milk

1/2 cup Oil

1/2 cup Apple
½ cup Raisins

1 tsp Cinnamon Powder

2 cups Flour

1 cup Sugar

1 tbsp Baking powder

1 Egg

1/4 tsp Salt

Heat oven to 400 F. Line the muffin pans with paper liners.

Mix milk, oil, cinnamon and egg in a large bowl until well blended. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Mix only until moistened. Fill muffin cups. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Enjoy while still warm.

Hey Deepa: If you get egg replacers, I think you could try them... In fact I made these muffins with the Ogran Egg Replacer. No change in texture etc. Quite nice. I keep the egg replacer ready as there are times when I have to make eggless cakes. :)
