  8. Do not over do it but just mix till you do not see any flour patches.
  9. Finally stir in chopped apples and mix to distribute evenly.
  10. Pre heat the oven to 180 C / 350 F.

  12. I used paper cups and did not grease them.
  13. Fill the cups with the muffin batter till they are 3/4th full, leaving enough space for the muffin to rise while baking.
