The yummiest fruit muffin in the world !!!

Hmm ... maybe not the cutest but surely one very delicious, at least in my opinion. But Hey, I got your attention right? Anyway, I write about this subject and I'm thinking what is the real difference between "cupcake" and "muffin". Both are terms used in English, but we also use them in French. I have always used the term "muffin" but frankly, I cannot tell the difference between the two.

I found this recipe on Google but I am unable to find the source, so if one day I get my hands on, I'll give the credit to that person.

*Can be replaced by two small  containers of 100g yogurt or 2 small containers of 100g applesauce or ¾ cup jam of your choice.

Add the dry mixture ① in the second ②.

When both are well mixed, gently add the fruits to avoid crushing them:
