Apple muffins

Inspired by Kev and Pat’s gluten-free muffins in the USA, this recipe uses wheat flour and is very easy. There is so little apple in each muffin you can regard it as failsafe. Kev and Pat's recipe calls for a mixture of gf flours including amaranth flour.
1½ cups self-raising flour
½ cup sugar
1 egg lightly beaten
2/3 cup milk or soymilk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 small to medium golden delicious apple
1-2 tbsp extra sugar

Sift flour into a bowl and sugar, egg, milk, and oil, stirring with a fork until mixed. Peel and dice apple, sprinkle with extra sugar and stir into mixture. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with oil and spoon mixture into cups. Bake at 180°C for 15-20 minutes.
