Preheat the oven. Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the eggs, one by one. Add the apple, milk, self-raising flour, wholewheat flour and baking soda, and beat until just mixed. Spoon into a greased giant muffin tray with six hollows and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked.

Mix the bananas, peanut butter and yoghurt in a blender until smooth and dilute the mixture with a little milk. Pour into tall glasses, sprinkle finely chopped peanuts over the top and serve with the apple muffins.

Add ice for a more runny, ice-cold smoothie if your blender can crush ice.

Tip of the day

Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
