ICCHFC - Week 6: Apple and blackberry mini muffins

Week 6 and Johnny brought in a selection of apple and blackberry mini muffins which just about made the journey in. John cycled in yesterday and didn't realise he route was quite so bumpy. John's top tip is:

do not cycle in when it's your turn to bake

Nevertheless (love that word; it's a threefer) the muffins made it in mostly intact. They were very light and moist. Clearly bigger muffins were required!

John's apple and blackberry muffins - the recipe (taken from http://www.muffinrecipes.co.uk/)

2 eggs
240ml milk
120ml vegetable oil
200g granulated sugar
375g plain flour
4tsp baking powder
1tsp salt
1tsp ground cinnamon
300g blackberries
3 apples
50g plain flour
30g granulated sugar
30g butter

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2. Place the eggs, oil, sugar and milk in a large mixing bowl and beat together
3. Add the flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon, and stir in thoroughly.
4. Peel and core the apples, then cut them into small pieces. Gently stir the apples and blackberries into the mixture.
5. Fill a muffin tray with paper muffin cases, and then fill each case to about two thirds full with the muffin mixture.
6. Rub together the extra flour, extra sugar and butter, until the mix resembles bread crumbs. 7. Sprinkle over the top of each muffin. Alternatively simply sprinkle sugar over the tops of the muffins.
8. Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes
