Eggless Apple - Cinnamon Cupcake/ Muffins

I love making cupcakes as quick evening snacks for Kids. It is very less time consuming, easy to make and healthier than any store bought snacks as we can have control on the ingredients. Usually kids love them when warm! It can be a good snack to school as well. Here is a recipe for Apple – Cinnamon (checke) cupcake. There is no maida used. Its indeed whole wheat eggless cupcake that you can prepare in 45 minutes total.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Baking Time: 20 – 25 minutes
Yields: 6 medium muffins
Apple – 1 medium
Wheat flour – 1¼ cup
Small semolina/ Fine rava – ¼ cup
Sugar – 5-6 tbsp (Mild sweet, you can adjust according to taste)
Baking soda – ½ tsp
Baking powder – ¼ tsp
Cinnamon powder – ¼ tsp
Butter/ Ghee – 2 tbsp
Milk – ¼ cup
Curds – ¼ or ½ cup
Lemon juice – 1 tsp
Lemon zest – 1 tsp
Salt – a pinch


Peel off apple, core out the seeds & fibre and discard them. Now chop apple finely, keep aside. Powder cinnamon stick and sugar together in a mixer. In a large mixing bowl, pour milk and add lemon juice; allow curdling. Collect lemon zest by grating the peel of lemon after extracting juice of it. Add ¼ cup curds, chopped apple, lemon zest and sugar & cinnamon powder to the curdled milk and mix well. Add ghee or butter too. Add wheat flour, small semolina (chiroti rava), baking powder, baking soda and salt. Combine well until a single mass is formed and there are no lumps in it. Add little curds if mixture is too dry. Do not make the mix runny. Now, preheat the oven to 180 deg Celsius. Drop batter prepared in each muffin mold (liner) equally. Make sure that you are leaving enough space for the muffins to rise. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until inserted fork or toothpick comes out clean. Do not open the oven door before 18 - 20 minutes to check. Once done, allow to cool for few minutes. Serve warm with any topping of your choice or as it is.
