Aprium MuffinsPosted: June 21, 2012
What is an aprium you might ask? An aprium is a hybrid fruit that is a mix of an apricot and a plum, but more of a APRICOT. comparable to a pluot, yet a pluot is much more PLUM than apricot.
They might be the FIRST official fruit off of my dad’s orchard. They are beautiful and actually quite tasty!
I love a good muffin. I made two batches of these, one I shared with friends, sadly it was lacking in some certain goodness. I made a second batch and it was MUCH better. That is the recipe I will share with you all.
Muffins are not cupcakes, so don’t expect these to be overly sweet. I used my blueberry muffin recipe and added cinnamon.
1 3/4 cups white flour
1 TB white flour (reserved)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp lemon peel
1 cup chopped apriums
1/2 cup applesauce
1 egg whites (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)
2 TB canola oil
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
Mix apriums with 1 tablespoon of flour. In separate bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, mix till incorporated. In another bowl mix remaining ingredients, mix ingredients together until barely mixed. Muffins are sensitive to overmixing, be careful. Spoon into greased muffin tins. Bake for 18-20 minutes on 375 degrees.
