Equipment

  • Thermomix (optional)
  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour sifted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 2 apples grated
  • 2 eggs
  • 250 ml (1 cup) buttermilk
  • 80 ml (⅓ cup) vegetable oil or canola oil
  • thin slices of apple for decoration
  • 3 tbs raw sugar optional, for sprinkling

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  • Place 12 muffin liners into a 12-hole muffin tray and set aside.
  • Sift the self raising flour, baking powder and ground cinnamon into a large bowl.

  • Create a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.
  • Grate 2 apples and place it into the well.
  • Whisk the eggs, buttermilk and vegetable oil in a bowl and pour on top of the apple.
  • Fold together gently (don't worry if there are still a few lumps - be careful not to over-mix or your muffins will be dense).
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared cases (filling ⅔ of the way to the top).
  • Decorate with thin apple slices and a sprinkle of raw sugar.
  • Cook for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Thermomix Method

  • Add the grated apple self raising flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and caster sugar and mix on Speed 4 for 5 seconds (check the mixture - it should still be a little lumpy). Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix for a further 2-3 seconds, Speed 4.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared cases (filling ⅔ of the way to the top).
  • Decorate with the thin apple slices and sprinkle over a little raw sugar.
