Yummy apple muffins
I don't bake much (because I am a little scared of ovens)
but I wanted to take something into work after having been away for a
week and a half and, also, I recently bought muffin tins so I decided to
bake some apple muffins to take in, using this recipe.
I am not very good at following recipes exactly so I added a bit more
apple (because apples don't come in 100g packages!), and a lot more
spice (as well as doubling the amount of ground ginger, I also added
ground cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla essence), dusted with a mix
of ground cinnamon and brown sugar after baking, and they came out
pretty well - if I do say so myself!
Folding in the chopped apple
I think, for my tastes, they weren't quite sweet enough - I think, probably, because I think of muffins as a dessert, not as breakfast food - so, next time, I might add a little more sugar. I think some peanut butter would also be nice in them. And maybe some dates..
