Apple experiment

There was one lonely egg sitting in my fridge this evening. Obviously, I had to end its misery. The bag of apples lying next to the fridge did the rest. I didn't measure anything, just added things until the batter looked about right, and ended up with lovely apple muffins. As you can see I only thought about taking a picture until it was too late for one of them...



What I used:
- 1 smallish apple
- 1 egg
- 2 heaped tablespoons of brown cane sugar
- some cinnamon, maybe half a teaspoon
- 1 heaped teaspoon of baking powder
- flour, I have no clue how much I used, maybe 8-10 tbsp?
- some oil to grease the muffin tin
- a muffin tin with 6 holes

What I did:
- preheat oven at 170 degrees Celsius (=normal cake temperature, about 350F I think?)
- peel & grate apple
- mix with egg, sugar and cinnamon
- mix baking powder and flour, add to wet ingredients
- grease muffin tin, fill holes to halfway or two-thirds full
- bake muffins for 15-20 minutes

What I ended up with:



These muffins contain very little fat and not much sugar, which is how I like my food the best. The texture of the end product is very cake-like, not bready, I love it.

Those sound yummy, and I think I have 2 eggs left and 1 apple, lol. I'll have to try them this weekend.
