Welcome to Little Chef’s Apron! Today, I will be announcing the results for the contest held a few days ago.  

And also we will be making apple crumb muffins!

As told earlier, there will only be one winner. So, the name of the winner is Tanvi Deshmukh!!!!

The name she decided for the recipe is ‘Jakies: A crispy fusion‘. It is attractive and exactly what my recipe and its taste depicted. Congratulations!!!! All the other entries were also amazing !

Starting off with the recipe,

Ingredients for muffins:

1 apple

1 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ cup curd

¼ cup oil

½ cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence

For the crumb,

2 tbsp flour

1 tbsp brown sugar( regular would also be okay)

½ tsp cinnamon

2 tsp butter


First, add the curd, oil, vanilla and sugar to a bowl and whisk well until combined completely. The sugar should be dissolved in it and the oil shouldn’t be visible.

Then, add the baking powder and baking soda and mix it well with the curd mixture. It will get foamy and bubbly and that is exactly what we are looking for. This will make sure that the cupcakes rise well in the oven.

Place a sieve over this and add the flour and cinnamon. Sieve well and gently mix it with the wet ingredients.

Peel the apple and place it on the chopping board. Chop them extremely fine and then add it to the batter. Mix well and add milk as required to make a smooth batter that is neither too thick nor too flowy.

Add these in equal quantities in cupcakes liners in a muffin tray. Fill until ¾th only.

For the crumb,

Mix the flour, cinnamon and sugar together. Add the butter and rub it with your hands. For crumbles by rubbing it against your palm. The crumb is ready and add a layer of this on top of each cupcake!

Bake at 180 degree C for 20-25 minutes in a preheated oven. Serve warm with powdered sugar glaze if you like!
