Strawberry Muffin without Butter


I chanced upon this post in Facebook by Anncoo few days back or was it last week? I cant really remember but I was really keen to bake them to try out as the thought of having a muffin without using any oil or butter, it is a healthy bake. 

So today, since i have the impulse to bake for hubby"s collits. I decided to bake them on top of the Cream Cheese Pandan Chiffon earlier today. We can have someone to split the 'fats'.. LOL. 

I replaced the orange juice in her recipe with all yogurt and added 10ml of milk as I was worried that if i didnt add additional liquid, the yogurt is too thick and end up the muffin might be slightly drier? Not too sure about that but the end batter seems a bit dry so I just add 10ml of milk to play safe.


Verdict: I find mine taste like cottony sponge cupcakes rather than muffins. But it is moist n nice.. Worth a try cos it is healthy without the 'fats'..
