There is always apples in the house and after watching Anna Olsen’s Sugar program on Friday, I decided to give it a try. Since I’ve not used Apples in any of my bakes, I’m curious how it taste like. The original recipe calls for cheddar cheese, dates and brown sugar which I omitted, the only thing I add is vanilla essence 🙂 and instead of whole-wheat flour, I replaced all with plain flour.
Again feeling lazy this weekend, what could be better than a wet and dry ingredients mix? Okay, I bake my favourite Hokkaido Milky Loaf yesterday and added a heap tbsp of peanut butter in it. I even hand knead the bread for a good 10 mins after the machine help to mix everything into a dough, this is one way to avoid getting my hands sticky with all the ingredients 😛 And I do think the bread is softer?
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar minus 1 tbsp (I find that 1 full cup is a little too sweet)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup apple, peeled and diced
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
2. Whisk together egg, oil, milk and sugar.
3. In a separate bowl, sift flours, baking powder and salt and stir into egg mixture.
4. Fold in apples
5. Bake for 30 minutes.
Guess how many utensils I used in the whole preparation? I think probably one of the rare time that I use the least – one mixing bowl, one measuring jug, 1 spatula, 1 measuring cup and 1 tablespoon!
I do like this recipe cos the “sourness” of the apple gives the muffins a refresh taste and it’s so easy to prepare!
