Apple-Walnut Muffins

6-cup muffin pan with freshly made cashew-raisin muffins

Procedure :
Toast walnuts, let them cool down, chop them and set them aside.
Grease a 6-cup muffin pan, set aside.
In a bowl, beat an egg, whisk it thoroughly; add flour, sugar, baking powder, milk and oil.
Stir altogether until moistened.
Add apple pieces and stir in gently and add 1/4 cup of walnuts; stir altogether gently.
Now pre-heat oven for 350 degrees Fahreinheat.
Fill each cup of the muffin pan to 2/3 full. Do not completely fill the batter, as they need some room to raise; hence fill it only to 2/3.
Sprinkle with remaining walnuts.
Place the pan inside oven and cook them for 25 to 35 mins or until well cooked. [To know whether the baking is done or not, plz follow the tip mentioned in "Tips and Tweaks" page on my blog].
Once muffins are done, take out the pan, let them cool down for few mins, serve them fresh :)

Cashew-Raisin Muffins

Follow the same procedure for the batter as above but in the place of apple-walnuts, add, cashew-raisins.
