Eggless Apple Raisin muffins

Why do some women put on weight after marriage? Put on some more after child birth? Why did I fall into that category of women???

Why can't I exercise regularly? Why can't I stop indulging on fatty food?

The first 3 "why"s are beyond my control, but the last 2... definitely I can do something about it..

As a first step, I have decided to bake cake/muffin or any such bakery product only after I reduce a kg of weight in next 2 weeks. I have my own method of working out and dieting(not starving) which I charted out by doing some research in the internet a few years back..It has always worked for me..Let me see how I fair this time..

Till my next baking adventure, here is a muffin recipe which I adapted from Madhuram's. As with any other fruit based muffin, I had this one too with chocolate cream. The rest of them liked it as it was. It tasted better the next day.

Igredients to make 12 medium sized muffins

All Purpose Flour/Maida: 2 cups Baking soda:1 tsp Walnuts: 1/4 cup(Chopped) Water : 1/4 cup(or a bit more if the batter is too thick) Brown Sugar : 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar: 1/4 cup Raisins : 1/2 cup Apple : 1 cup(peeled and grated) Butter : 1/4 cup(at room temperature) Cinnamon: 1/8th tsp Nutmeg a pinch

1. Pre heat the oven to 180 degree C. 2. Combine flour, baking soda and walnuts in a bowl. 3. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a pan and bring to boil. 4. Remove from heat and cool completely. 5. Add the flour mixture to the cooled mixture and mix until combined. (Do not over mix. It would result in hard muffins) 6. Place the muffin liners in a muffin tin and fill with the batter. If liners are not available, directly fill the muffin tins to almost full. 7. Bake for 15 minutes or till a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.

Cool and serve.

It makes for a healthy and easy breakfast.

    each of one other sports activities trainers concerning
    Nike Air Max market. His album Homework shot to popularity as soon
    as it got released in the year 1997. The video then provides a
    background to how the stain came to be, from the growing of the tomato plant,
    to his mom making him homemade spaghetti sauce, and everything in between.
