As mentioned in Day 77 of The Challenge
These were experimental, and came out very well. I wanted bread to go with our lunch. But we were out of bread, so I was going to make baking powder biscuits. But I was out of butter, so I decided to make corn muffins, but then realised that I had used the last of the eggs and milk already. So I made corn muffins with what I had - Apple sauce and apple juice instead of the eggs and milk. They were a bit sweeter than normal, and a little moister, but they worked!
1 c flour
1 c cornmeal
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c sunflower oil
3/4 c apple juice
3/4 c apple sauce
1) Mix together the dry ingredients. Gradually add the wet ingredients, mixing well to prevent lumps.
2) Spoon into muffin cups or into a prepared cake tin.
3) Bake at 200°C for 25-30 minutes.
These worked very well? They are certainly more sweet than savoury, and worked best with just butter, no jam or chutney really did justice or had its own justice done on these muffins, but they were tasty never-the-less. In future, I might use a little less apple sauce, and probably cut the sugar a little. Definitely worth a try for a bit of variety though!
