apple and lemon muffins

Last night in a fit of procrastibaking I made my favourite, favourite muffins. (I'm not always a muffin-fan but these are WONDERFUL and fairly healthy given that they are a sweet treat.)

They are also very quick, which slightly undermines the 'procrasti' element of the procrastibaking. 10-15 minutes to get them ready, 15-20 minutes to cook.

Start by preheating your oven to 220*C (430*F).

Mix in a bowl 2 cups of flour, half a cup of sugar, 4 teaspoons of baking powder, and one apple that you have peeled and chopped up into small pieces.

Melt 75 grams of butter (this is about 2-3oz). Mix into this 1 cup of milk, 2 eggs, and the zest of two lemons.
(The recipe I use says 1 lemon, but I find 2 lemons give it a better flavour. I am a lemonophile.)

Combine the two mixtures, and spoon into a muffin tray. Mix up a small amount of cinnamon with some sugar, and scatter over each muffin. Into the oven, cook for about 20 minutes - easy-peasy.

And very yummy. This recipe makes muffins that taste very, very good, but they also taste fresh and subtle and light.

Procrastibaking? Genius in word and idea. These look uniquely yummy!
