Yogurt Muffins with Apple

Normally I would not blog this recipe because it is not necessarily an Indonesian recipe, but on my Insta I received the request of a follower. So here is the recipe for my yogurt muffins with apples.

This recipe is enough for 10 – 12 muffins (depending on how full you fill the liners) and is ready in 45 minutes.

I use a muffin baking tin. This gives them that specific muffin shape.

If you make 10 muffins (fill up the liners to the brim) bake them a little longer. Mine were perfect after 38 minutes. Check with a skewer if they are done.

Recipe Yogurt Muffins with Apple


  • 250 grams of self-rising flour
  • 250 grams of semi-skimmed yogurt
  • 3 eggs
  • 150 grams of white caster sugar
  • 70 grams of real butter
  • 2 small red apples or 1 large one
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown caster sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  1. Melt the butter on a low heat
  2. Cut the two apples in four and cut into 2 cm pieces
  3. Mix in a tablespoon of dark brown caster sugar
  4. Mix eggs, sugar, and salt with a whisk
  5. Add cinnamon
  6. Add the melted butter to the eggs and sugar and stir with the whisk
  7. Add the yogurt and stir
  8. Add sifted flour and scoop through with a spatula until everything is absorbed (if lumps form, you can use the whisk for a moment or stir them gently, not too hard otherwise you will knock out too much air)
  9. Fill cupcakes liners that are in a muffin tin up to (almost) the rim with batter
  10. Add the apple pieces on top (about a tablespoon for each muffin)
  11. Bake in a preheated oven (175 degrees) for 25-30 minutes
  12. Once out of the oven, let cool for 15 minutes in the baking tray and then remove.

I am really happy with this simple recipe. My yogurt muffins with apple stay extremely tender and fluffy and they taste wonderfully fresh.

I also kept them in a cookie jar for a few days, and they remained moist and tender.

You can be creative with this recipe. You can give every muffin a different topping, like banana or nuts. Or you can spice up the batter with powdered cloves or lime zest for example.
