I found this recipe on a German baking site and finally I found the time to test it. The muffins turned out soft and moist, with a wonderful maple syrup aroma. I love them!

Directions

  1. Cut apples in small cubes.
  2. In one bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and nuts. In a second bowl, beat together the egg, oil, sugar, salt, sirup and yoghurt.
  3. Add flour-mixture and apples to the second bowl, mixing all ingredients.
  4. Fill in greased muffin tin.
  5. Bake at 190 degree Clsius for about 20 minutes.

Very good recipe. The maple syrup flavour is mild and delicate. I used eating apples, but I think sharp cooking apples would be better; I also peeled them (the recipe doesn't mention this). Half-way through the recipe, I realised that someone had eaten most of the maple syrup and that I only had 60ml left in the house! So I divided all the wet and dry mixes into two, then added maple syrup to one half and slightly diluted floral honey to the other half. I used paper muffin cases instead of greasing the tin. Both sets of six muffins turned out very well - light and moist, and very more-ish. Reviewed for Pick A Chef, Spring 2007.
