Apricot Muffins

Ingredients

cup Apricots finely snipped
cup Unsweetened apple juice
2 teaspoons Baking powder
teaspoon Baking soda
teaspoon Ground cardamom or ginger
cup Chopped walnuts
3 tablespoons Vegetable oil
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 Egg

Preparation

1
Soak the apricots in the apple juice for 10 minutes. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, spice and walnuts in a bowl. Beat together the oil, sugar, and egg. Add the apricots, with the juice and egg mixture to the flour.
2
Mix just until all the ingredients are blended. Spoon into oiled muffin tins or (my choice) paper muffin cups (sprayed with non-stick spray). Fill cups 3/4 full. Bake in 350 F oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Suggestions: Use raisins to test the recipe if you do not have apricots. Leave out walnuts to reduce the fat and use 2 egg whites instead of the whole egg to reduce cholesterol if desired.
