Apple Almond Cupcakes

Yesterday afternoon we made a batch of muffins to take to our friend’s house today.
I used one of Enim Sou’s delicious recipes. You can find the original here, in German.
But she has very kindly agreed to let me share an English translation with you, so you can share the yumminess, yay!

60g ground almonds
120g spelt flour
70g plain flour
125g sugar
1 level tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 apple
a little lime juice
2 eggs (or 1 egg and 2 yolks, if you have other use for the egg whites like Enim Sou)
60ml olive oil
150ml buttermilk (regular milk works fine too)

Mix the almonds, flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl.
Grate the apple and mix with a few squirts of lime juice.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, olive oil and buttermilk.

Quickly combine the wet ingredients with the flour mix and apple, taking care not to overmix.

Spoon the batter into prepared muffin tins. Ours made 12 good sized muffins (Enim Sou decorated each with a whole almond on top at this point. We didn’t have any, so we drizzled some melted dark chocolate over them once baked.)

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 190° C for 20-25 minutes until golden.
Leave  to cool in the tin for a few minutes, and then cool on a wire rack.

If you used chocolate on top, you may want to watch out for little fingers trying to catch the drips!

They are lovely and light and fluffy and delicious. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we did. And thanks to Enim Sou for sharing the recipe!
