Apple Pineapple Muffins
3 cups pastry flour (moelleux aux noix)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
5 egg whites (room temperature)
1 cup crushed pineapple (recette ananas roti)
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 tart apple (cored, peeled, and diced)
½ cup milk
1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a muffin tin with nonstick spray or line the cups with paper.
2 In a bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon.
3 In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip the egg whites on medium speed, until frothy. Whip on high until soft peaks form.
4 In another large bowl, stir together the pineapple, applesauce, vanilla, apple, and milk. Fold in the egg whites. Add about a third of the flour mixture to the pineapple mixture, then fold the ingredients together. Keep adding the flour mixture a third at a time, folding it in gently, until all the ingredients are just combined.
5 Pour the batter into the muffin tin, filling each cup about 2/3 full. Place the muffin tin on a baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes in the muffin tin, then turn out the muffins onto a wire rack and cool completely.
