Apple Muffins

These Apple Muffins are completely from organic produce, except the Baking Powder, but its aluminum free and low allergy. They are easy to make, good for you and delicious!

220 grams plain purpose flour
2 teapoons baking powder
1/2 cup caster sugar
3/4 cup milk or butter milk (butter milk will make then raise more)
1 egg
3/4 cup olive oil
1 green apple - chopped
100 grams (1/2 cup) sultanas
1 teapoon cinnamon

Preheat Oven to 180 celsius (350 fahrenheit).
Place Muffin Papers in Muffin Tin x 12.
Mix/Sift flour, sugar, cinnamon and baking powder into large bowl.
Add sultanas and chopped green apple. Mix, coating fruit.

Sift flour and baking powder into large bowl. Add Sugar.

Combine milk, egg and olive oil in a separate bowl and whisk.

Make a centre in dry ingredient, pour in liquid and mix lightly, its better to be lumpy than over mixed. (Over mixed batter makes rubbery muffins)

Spoon batter into muffin tin. Cook for 20-25min, cool on wire rack.

Note: I used to scoff at sifting flour, but then I discovered that it adds air to your mixture and makes much better muffins.
