I love baking cupcakes and muffins. I have been telling this each and every time I post a recipe on cupcakes / muffins. I’m glad that I got an opportunity to do a cooking show in one of the top Tamil Channels to bake my favorite muffins.
I prepared eggless sapota muffins for the show with crushed walnuts topping. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to see the show as it was telecasted when I was out on a vacation. Luckily, one of my family friends shared me a clipping yesterday from the youtube version of the show. I will share it here in my blog once I get a clear picture of it.

2) In a large mixing bowl, mix milk and sugar till sugar dissolves.
3) Add oil and mix again.
4) Add dry ingredients (Wheat flour, baking powder and baking soda). Mix well and the mixture would turn thick.

9) Once done, transfer to a wire basket and allow it to cool completely.
1) You can adjust sugar based on the sweetness of sapota. No need to use an entire cup.
2) Don’t add water while making the sapota puree. Choose ripe sapota for best results.
3) Any kind of nuts can be used.
