FRESH FRUIT MUFFIN

Photobucket

Fresh fruit muffin is a healthy breakfast, healthy snack for your kid or as an afternoon snack with your favorite drink. You can add almost any fruit in your muffin but most popular choice are banana and  blueberry.

This muffin is great anytime of the year, much healthier than the store bought ones since you can control the amount of sugar and fat to use. Make sure you cut the fruit into tiny bits and line your tins with muffin cup liners to avoid sticking.

FRESH FRUIT MUFFIN
Yield    :      12 muffin

1 1/2 C all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 C brown sugar
1 C fresh fruit chopped (I use apple and plum)
5  TB  melted butter
3/4  C  milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
extra sugar to sprinkle on top (optional)

METHOD

Preheat oven @ 190 C. Sift flour, salt and baking powder. Line muffin pan with muffin paper cases

Place flour, sugar in a mixing bowl.

In a small bowl, combine melted butter and milk, stir well.

Pour milk mixture into flour, mix until just combined.

Add in fruit and vanilla extract. stir until just moistened.

Spoon 3/4 full into paper lined muffin pan, sprinkle sugar on top (optional). Bake for 20-25 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Cool on pan 5 minutes, transfer onto rack to cool.
