Raisin,Apple & Oat Muffins

These are rustic looking yet hearty muffins made from oats and the normal APF along with apples and raisins. I found the recipe on the back cover of raisins or currants -Sunmaid one for sure.I had just cut out the recipe while discarding the empty box.Any way these are quick fix muffins that were naturally eggless,so it was all the more easy for me to mix the batter awhile the oven preheated.

Dry Mix:
Oats: 1 cup
All Purpose Flour: 1 cup
Baking powder: 2 tsp
Cinnamon: 2 tsp
Nutmeg: 1 tsp
Allspice: 1/4 tsp
Salt: 1/2 tsp

Wet Mix:
Raisins: 1 cup
Apple: peeled and chopped: 1 cup
Milk: 3/4 cup
Sugar: 1/3 cup
Vegetable Oil: 1/4 cup

Brownsugar: or Sugar crystals: for topping (optional) : 2 tbsp

Combine the dry items in a bowl. Combine the wet mix ingredients in another wider bowl. The sugar,raisins and apple are a part of the wet mix. Stir the dry mix into the wet mix bowl and stir until just combined.Spoon the batter into lined or greased muffin cups

Top optionally with brown sugar or sugar crystals.I did not.Bake in a preheated oven at 400F/200C for about 15-20 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. I reduced the temperature slightly -190C still mine were done in 18 minutes. So keep an eye 12th minute onwards especially if going for 400F.

The muffins are simple to mix and are very hearty and apple flavour stands out even among the spices.I actually got a chunky batter and was wondering how they will turn out. I would not say they look professional,but kind of rustic,but tastewise they will give a good looking muffin run for money.

They are going to CWF:Oats at Priya's Easy n TastyRecipes, an event by Kiran of Sumadhura.

On a happier note: I have won the Only Salads event held at Prathibha's The Chef and her Kitchen, an event originally by Pari of Foodelicious. I have won Tarla Dalal's Healthy Soups and Salads.This is the first time I am winning an event in the three years of blogging.The year 2011 has started on a lucky note for me. Surely you can look forward to all the soups and salads shortly in this space.Thanks for hosting Prathibha and Pari.
