Keep up the great work ladies you're almost there!!

*Note- completely opposite to my most recent posts, once you look at the ingredients...these are definitely not on the good side of the healthy scale!
80g unsalted butter (softened, but not melted! just leave it out on the counter)
280g caster sugar
240g plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
240ml whole milk
2 large eggs
2 Granny Smith apples
50g walnuts, chopped
600g icing sugar
100g unsalted butter, softened (but not melted!)
250g Philly cream cheese
ground cinnamon for dusting
walnut pieces to decorate
Method to the madness:
1) Preheat the oven to 190'C (375'F) and line a muffin tine with paper cases.
2) The instructions now say to use a hand-held whisk or electric mixer with a paddle to bet together the butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon on a low speed until fine bread crumbs. My whisk sucked, and I can't afford the fancy gadget so I used my hands to mix it in to ensure no butter lumps!
3) Place the milk in a jug with the eggs and whisk (That I could do!) until combined. Then pour three quarters of the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and mix on a low speed to combine. Increase the speed to medium and keep beating until smooth and thick. I tell yeah, my arms got a work out!! Then pour in the remaining milk mixture and continue to mix on a medium speed until it forms a nice smooth batter.
|I scream, you scream, we all scream for apple walnut muffins!!!!!|
7) When the cupcakes feel cold to the touch (brrrrrr), spread the frosting and smooth them out. Dust with cinnamon and top with walnut pieces!
|Pack them neatly into a shoe box, cover with an entire roll of bubble wrap, put them in the post!!!!|
