RECIPE TIPS

these apple muffins stay good for 3-4 days in the fridge. but due to jaggery muffins can become moist, if kept for more than 1-2 days. so better to have them fresh.

  1. This recipe did not work well. Muffins baked from Upper and mushy from inside. Why is it so? Bcoz baking is not new for me

  2. I just made these and they turned out absolutely delicious. I am new to baking and all my successful attempts have been with your recipes.
    Thank you so much!!

  3. Turned out to be great, I have tried your apple muffins, banana cake and wheat nankhatai and they all were fab. First time baking with success. All thanks to you! Best part was I used organic whole wheat flour and organic jaggery in all the recipes with success and that makes it so healthy too.

    • Welcome Garima. Glad to know that baking recipes are turning out good. I try to use whole wheat flour in baking recipes wherever possible to make them more healthy. I also use organic products wherever possible in my kitchen specially flour, sugar, tea, lentils and veggies.

  4. Thanks for this recipe.. This is my first at baking muffins. As soon as they are made will it be a little moist inside. How long it takes to get the porous texture?

  5. Hi! I usually so not go back and post a comment on the recipe but freely recommends to my friends..however this recipe was SO GOOD that I just had to come back and tell you so…I’ve never had such aromatic muffins even at the best bakery! My daughter loved them so much that she just gobbled them up two at a time – I didn’t even have time for pictures! Thanks a lot! Great recipe..i only tweaked by adding lemon juice in place of vinegar..turned out awesome

  6. Thanks for the great recipe.
    Tried once, came out perfect. When tried for second time, muffins got flat in the last (I saw them dome shaped in between cooking) and after taking it out they were all wet from inside. What could be wrong, please help.

    • the muffins have not baked well. thats why they have got sunken or flat. you can keep them again and bake for some more time. for the next time, just bake for more minutes.

  7. Hello Madam,

    I’m planning to avoid sugar / jaggery for my baby. what is the best way to replace sugar/jaggery in the above mentioned recipe. Is the sweetness of the apple enough for the sweetness of muffins.

    Thanks in advance

    • rohini, the sweetness of the apple is not enough. a few alternatives can be dates puree, raisins puree, figs puree or prunes puree or any sweet berries pureed. another option is to add banana puree or apple sauce. but the apple sauce should be not sweetened with sugar and be naturally sweet. if using dates or raisins or prunes or figs, then just soak them in water for a couple of hours and then puree. dates can also be cooked in some water till it softens and then pureed. if using very soft dates, then no need to puree them. for apple sauce you can check this link – https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/applesauce-recipe-no-sugar/

  8. Hi..I tried many of ur cakes on stove top…aluminum cake pan..on the bottom on pan need to put sand on stove in a small pan.all cakes came good.now want to check can I do muffins in the same method that is applying or brushing oil in the pan and then put muffins on that as u did in oven.pls suggest

    • thanks san. you can do muffins with the same method. you can use small bowls (vatis) and place the muffin liners in it. this will keep them in shape. place the bowls in a pan. add sand the way you add. then bake.

      • Thank you for your response. On unavailability, can I skip vanilla essence and vinegar? Will that hinder the taste of muffins.

      • you can skip vanilla and can add some other aromatic ingredient like 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon powder or cardamom powder. instead of vinegar use 1/2 tbsp lemon juice. some acidity is required for the baking soda to react. you can also use 1 tbsp of buttermilk instead of vinegar. with any ingredient you substitute, the taste and flavor will change.

  9. Hey I have tried many recipes from ur blog and they really turn out well but apple muffins didn’t worked for me.. Some apple pieces settled down on base of cupcakes and also cupcakes were not fluffy.. Can you please suggest me what must have went wrong.. I added powdered sugar instead of jaggery

    • komal, thanks for sharing positive feedback on recipes. the fluffiness will not be there if the batter has folded/mixed too much or if the baking soda used is not fresh or not in its shelf life.

  10. Hello ma’am!
    A big fan of your wonderful blog! My mother and I did try many recipes which we learnt through this and it was all a great hit!
    I have a small request, that if you could please share a recipe of baking cakes etc in a pressure cooker.

  11. Hi Dear,i have learnt a lot from ur recepies so thank u so much for such a great blog,i want some suggestion ,actually i want to learn baking in delhi can u tell me how to start from where?

    • thanks pooja. i do not know any institute or any person who teaches baking in delhi. if i knew some center or person personally, i would have recommended the same to you. however, for baking, i would suggest to take up the course in a professional institute. one of the institutes i have heard about a lot and very good for baking is le cordon bleu. but they do not have any center in india. i have heard they do offer online courses as well.
