Apple and blueberry muffin

Makes 12 pieces

This is a great all-purpose muffin recipe that be used for pretty much any flavour. I reckon you should pack them full of fruit for the best result, but the chocoholics can get in on the action too.

  • 225g white self-raising flour
  • 100g wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • ½ cup light olive oil
  • 1 cup pie apples, diced
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries

1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Combine the flours, spices and sugar in a large bowl. Whisk the eggs, milk and oil in a second bowl.

2 Stir the two mixtures together, then set aside for 5 minutes. Fold in the apples and blueberries gently, then spoon into lined ½ cup muffin moulds and bake for 20-25 minutes, until well-risen and firm to touch. Cool on a wire rack before serving.

Professional Tip: This recipe makes 36 mini muffins, although for mini muffins make sure to dice the apples very small.
