Apple Custard Muffin : Something naughty for the weekend


Are you a kind of person who like to stay long in the bed during weekend morning, so long till the clock ticks twelve and still feeling lazy to wake up.  Ok you wake up now, once you brush your teeth the next thing on your head, what's for breakfast.  Bored and tired of having a bowl of cereals, orange juice, bread with egg for your whole weekdays and rushing to work.  It's time to keep aside all your guilty feelings, diet conscious and enjoy these scrumptious muffins for this weekend.


Late Sunday morning, sitting on the side of  a large bright window with lots of sunlight but no heat hitting at you, with a cup of coffee and  a muffin on your hand is a bliss.  Alright , you don't have to go to any dreamland to enjoy these simple muffins, juts your regular breakfast table should be more than enough. If  you are still not satisfied to have these muffins for your breakfast, why not try it for your afternoon tea, which would be just perfect too.

  Anyway I tried these muffins from one of my favourite cookbook which is is been resting in my self for a quite long time now.  So it's a triple tested and trusted recipe which you can totally rely on.  Hope I have convinced you to make these muffins :)

Source: The Australian Women's Weekly
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 30- 35 minutes
Makes 6 muffin

Ingredients:
All purpose flour- 225 g
Sugar- 85 g
Butter- 45 g melted
Milk- 125 ml
Baking powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Egg- 1/2 of 1 whole egg
Bicarbonate of soda- 1/4 tsp
Thick custard- 30 ml
Apple pie filling- 2 tbsp ( recipe follows)
Brown sugar or jaggery powder- 2 tbsp
Grated nutmeg- 2 tsp
Cinnamon powder- 1/2 tsp

Method :
Sift the flour and baking powder and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl, add sugar, 1 tsp of grated nutmeg and cinnamon powder to the flour mixture and mix it well .  Make a well  in the middle, add egg, milk and melted butter to the flour mixture, just stir to combine, do not over mix it.  The mixture should be quite lumpy. If the mixture is too thick like a dough, add a tbsp of milk to loosen the mixture.  The mixture should be similar to that of a thick batter consistency.
Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.  Line the muffin tray with muffin cups.  Spoon half of the mixture equally in the 6 muffin cups. Using the back of a spoon, make a small well in the middle of the mixture, drop a teaspoon of custard and a teaspoon of apple filling in the well . Top with the remaining muffin mixture and sprinkle with brown sugar and grated nutmeg on top.  Bake it in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes.  Stand in the pan for 5 minutes before turning to a wire rack. Serve warm.

Apple Pie Filling:
Ingredients:
Half of 1 apple
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Sugar- 1/2 tbsp
Cinnamon powder- 1/4 tsp
Cornstarch- 2 tsp
Butter- 3 tsp

Method:
Peel and slice the apples thinly in small size.  Mix the apple, sugar, cinnamon powder and lemon juice in a bowl.   Let it rest in a bowl for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes extract all the juice released from apples.  Add the extract, cornstarch and butter in a pan, let it boil.  When it starts boiling , add the apples and cover it cook till it looks thick and saucy.  Remove it from heat, let it cool down completely and use it for the recipe.
