The perfect coffee companion - Apple n Carrot muffins :)

Carrot and raisin muffins with a steaming cup of coffee tastes heavenly. I still have the taste lingering in my mouth... I am not an avid baker and seldom indulge in baking. Occasionally, I get super inspired to bake and in the heat of the moment, I do some good work ;) Here is one such recipe- it's got em' all- carrot, apple, raisin & nuts (super moist) muffins-

What do we need?

2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup yogurt
1/3 cup melted butter
1 medium apple peeled and chopped finely
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped cashew nuts
1 1/2 cup shredded carrots
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
dash of cardamom powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 eggs

How did I do it?

In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs together with sugar and slowly mix in the yogurt, apple, carrot, raisins, melted butter, vanilla and nuts. Add the flour to this mixture and blend in the cardamom powder. Stir till it has blended well. Using a spoon, fill in the greased muffin cups with the batter. Bake for around 25-30 minutes in a pre-heated oven @ 175 degree celsius. Once cooled, they taste divine with a steaming cup of coffee. Yum!
(Dust the muffins with powdered sugar-optional)
