Currant and Apple Muffins

Apple and Zante currant muffinsWho doesn't like muffins? I like them fresh and hot but some of my family members prefer to relish them at the room temperature. Today, we're going to make apple and currant muffins with limited numbers of ingredients. If you do not want to include apple in these muffins, you can omit them completely making a simpler version. Similarly, currant can be replaced with local raisin variants. Sometimes, I add caramel syrup in muffins which give a distinct flavor to the recipe. Whether you're making a cake or a muffin preparation, the result depends on how well the ingredients are blended with right proportions. So, let's get ready and make these delicious apple muffins for our loved ones.
