Ambrosia Apple Muffins Recipe

Ambrosia's Custard Coated Fruit Flakes have become quite a favourite in my house since I first reviewed them.  You can see my review here http://insidethewendyhouse.blogspot.com/2011/05/love-custard-youll-love-ambrosia-snacks.html

 The Apple Flakes are the preferred flavour so when I was sent a recipe for Ambrosia Apple Muffins to try, my children were very interested in giving them a try!  Nana and Grandad are due a visit so it was the perfect opportunity for us to get baking, using the Ambrosia Apple Flakes as an ingredient.  So together with my Tiny Testers we donned our aprons and got cooking!


Ambrosia Apple Muffins
250g wholemeal self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground mixed spice
85g light muscovado sugar
100g Ambrosia Custard Coated Apple Flakes
125g tub low-fat yogurt
125ml skimmed milk
3 tbsp sunflower oil
1 egg , lightly beaten

Icing
      200g icing sugar
    3 tbsps apple juice

Cooking Time: 15-20 minutes
Makes:             12-14 muffins

Method
1.     Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a muffin tin with paper cases.

2.     Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and mixed spice into a mixing bowl, then stir in the sugar and fruit flakes.

3.     Mix the yoghurt, milk, oil and egg together separately, then slowly add to the dry mix and gently fold in until combined.

4.     Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases (about one table spoon per case) then bake for 15-20 minutes until risen and firm to touch.



5.     Once the muffins are cool, mix together the apple juice and icing sugar to ice the muffins if required. (We didn't think they needed the icing so we had them plain.)



The muffins were absolutely lovely, moist and fruity with bursts of apple inside.  I'm definitely going to be using the Ambrosia Banana Flakes as an ingredient next time I make banana muffins.  They will add a real twist to a family favourite.


Nana and Grandad were very impressed with the muffins and loved the sweet fruit pieces inside. They got a definite thumbs up from us Inside the Wendy House!
