Persimmon Walnut Muffins / Mafini od japanske jabuke – kaki sa orasima

If you remember my story about having some persimmons lying around, here is what I did with the other one. This batch of muffins is a bit on the smaller side, but definitely bigger than being a half-batch. I ended up with 10 muffins, so I don’t really suggest doubling up the recipe for bigger yield, unless you of course have an extra set of muffin tins lying around.

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly grease your muffin tins with a bit of oil or butter, but skip this step if using silicone muffin molds. Peel and dice the persimmon, then puree until smooth. Whisk in the egg, vanilla, cream and milk then stir the melted butter into the mixture. Add in sugar, flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and stir until just combined and no lumps remain. Finally, fold in chopped walnuts and raisins.

Divide the batter between prepared muffin tins and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the tops are nice and golden brown. Leave the muffins to cool for about 5 minutes in their molds before transferring to a rack to cool off completely.

Ako se sjećate moje pričice o dvije japanske jabuke – kaki, evo gdje sam upotrijebila onu drugu koja mi je bila preostala. Ova runda mafina je nešto manja, ali definitivno ju ne bih zvala polovicom smjese. Meni je ispalo sve skupa 10 mafina, pa nemojte duplati recept, osim ako naravno nemate i dupli set kalupa za mafine.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 10 mafina / 1,44 kn po mafinu / 14,42 kn za sve)

1 zrela japanska jabuka kaki (3,00 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 žlice kiselog vrhnja (1,00 kn)

½ šalice mlijeka (0,75 kn)

3 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (3,00 kn)

3 žlice šećera (0,15 kn)

1 i ½ šalica glatkog brašna (0,75 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice praška za pecivo (0,05 kn)

¼ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

½ šalice sjeckanih oraha (2,50 kn)

½ šalice grožđica (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Ako koristite plehnati kalup za mafine, lagano ga namastite sa malo ulja ili maslaca. Za silikonske kalupe ovaj korak preskočite. Ogulite i nasjeckajte kaki, pa ga onda izgnječite u pire. Umutite u to jaje, vaniliju, kiselo vrhnje i mlijeko, pa na kraju umiješajte i rastopljeni maslac. Dodajte šećer, brašno, sol, prašak za pecivo i sodu bikarbonu, te miješajte da se sve sjedini i nema grudica. Konačno, umiješajte i sjeckane orahe i grožđice.

Smjesu podijelite po pripremljenim kalupima i pecite 25-30 minuta, dok mafini ne dobiju lijepu zlatno-smeđu boju. Ostavite ih da se 5 minuta hlade u svojim kalupima prije nego ih preselite na rešetku da se ohlade do kraja.

Persimmon and Oat Breakfast Cups (vegan) / Doručak-košarice sa japanskom jabukom (kaki) i zobenim pahuljicama (veganske)

I’ve bought a couple of persimmons a while back and was waiting for them to ripen for weeks. Now when they were finally ripe, I honestly had no idea what to do with them. However, mixing fruits and oats is always a great idea in my book, so in the end I opted for these breakfast cups.

I used small silicone muffin molds to hold everything together, but you can use regular muffin molds as well. Just be sure to line them with paper liners and only add small scoops of batter to each cup, since these end up quite brittle in the end and you ideally want to end up with bite-sized cups.

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 175°C. Peel and finely dice the persimmon. In a bowl, whisk together coconut oil, date syrup, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, vanilla and salt. Add in the oats, flax seeds, baking powder, diced persimmon and raisins. Stir until everything is well combined, then scoop the mixture into prepared muffin tin. I used a small ice-cream scoop for easier handling. Use you scoop or a spoon to press the batter into the muffin molds. Bake for 20 minutes, until fragrant and slightly crispy. Allow the oat cups to cool completely in their molds before attempting to remove them. Enjoy as an easy portable breakfast or as a healthy snack.

Ima već dosta vremena od kada sam kupila dvije japanske jabuke kaki te sam tjednima čekala da dozriju. Sada kada su napokon zrele, nisam imala baš nikakve ideje što bih s njima mogla napraviti. Međutim, miks voća i zobenih pahuljica uvijek mi se čini kao okej plan i tako sam nekako došla do ovih slasnih košarica.

Ja sam svoje napravila u silikonskom kalupu za mini mafine, ali možete slobodno upotrijebiti i običan kalup. Samo ga obavezno obložite papirnatim košaricama, a u svaku posudicu za mafin dodajte malu količinu smjese, pošto su ovi zalogaji u konačnici dosta krhki, pa je idealno da sve možete utrpati u usta u jednom grizu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 15-20 košarica / 10,05 kn)

1 zrela japanska jabuka – kaki (3,00 kn)

2 žlice rastopljenog kokosovog ulja (2,00 kn)

3 žlice sirupa od datulja (0,75 kn)

3 žlice veganskog mlijeka (0,30 kn)

½ žličice cimeta (0,25 kn)

¼ žličice muškatnog oraščića (0,13 kn)

¼ žličice mljevenih klinčića (0,13 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 i ½ šalica mješavine sitnih i krupnih zobenih pahuljica (1,50 kn)

1 žlica mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,25 kn)

¼ žličice praška za pecivo (0,03 kn)

½ šalice grožđica (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 175°C. Ogulite i nasjeckajte kaki. U zdjelici pomiješajte kokosovo ulje, sirup od datulja, mlijeko, cimet, muškatni oraščić, klinčiće, vaniliju i sol. Dodajte zobene, lan, prašak za pecivo, sjeckani kaki i grožđice. Miješajte dok se sve ne sjedini, pa smjesu raspodijelite po pripremljenim kalupima za mafine. Ja sam za lakše grabljenje koristila malu žlicu za sladoled. Žlicom još malo utisnite smjesu u kalup za mafine. Pecite 20-tak minuta, dok košarice ne zamiriše i ne zahrskaju se. Pustite da se sve dobro ohladi u kalupima prije nego što krenete vaditi van. Papajte kao lagani prijenosni doručak ili mali zdravi snack.
