Toffee Apple Yogurt Muffins

Uncategorized | December 8, 2010 | By

I wanted to use up the last of the apples I got from my neighbour and also the last of the Total Greek Yogurt, so I adapted a basic muffin recipe to include these ingredients. I also found half a bag of fudge pieces in my cupboard so threw them in as well.  The mixture was quite dry but the muffins turned out really moist and they also kept well and were delicious when warmed through in the microwave for 20 seconds.

Toffee Apple Muffins
Makes 6-8 (but I doubled all the ingredients)
150g/5oz self-raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
50g/2oz dark muscovado sugar
120ml/4fl oz Greek Yogurt
25g/1oz butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
2 peeled cored and chopped apples

50g/2oz fudge pieces

1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.  Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.
2. Mix the sugar, yogurt, butter and egg in another bowl.
3. Fold the flour mix into the wet mix and then fold in the chopped apple and fudge pieces.

4. Spoon the mixture into greased muffin tins or paper cases.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until well risen and firm to the touch.  Leave in the tins for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.  Serve warm or cool.
