Kefir...blueberry kefir muffins and apple, almond, raisins kefir cake

I love home made kefir, and when I have too much of it, I make muffins or apple cake. The texture of the apple cake is very soft, almost like a flan....delicious and healthy!

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 teaspoons baking powder

4 large eggs, room temperature

180 grams sugar

250 grams of kefir

70 grams of butter

1 lemon zest

milk as needed (I used 1/4 cup)

2 apples peeled and in cubes


almonds sliced

Mix butter, sugar and lemon zest. Beat it until creamy. Add the eggs, and beat it. Incorporate the kefir, flour, and baking powder. If needed, then add some milk untiol you have a cake batter texture.

Preheat oven to 180C. Place parchment paper in your mold. Place half of the batter in the mold, then add apple, raisins and almonds, place the rest of the batter. Bake it at 180C for 30-40 minutes, or until a skewer or knife inserted is dry. Serve it and ENJOY!
