Appel muffin with cinnamon and cardamon

I really like home-made apple muffins with cinnamon. So when I found this recipe with a twist to the added spices, I saved it for a day, where I would bake apple muffins. I found the in weekly newsletter from Årstiderne newsletter for week 52/2010 Årstidernes newsletter 52/2010

The baking time for these muffins has really been causing me some difficulties. In the original recipe the baking temperature is 180'C for 20 minutes. I tried this the first I baked these muffins, without any success. My oven is traditional oven without air circulation, so the muffins were NOT baked. Increasing the baking time did not work either.
The second I baked these muffins, I applied 200'C as baking temperature for 20 minutes, this worked better. Howeever, I still could not get the muffins of the silicone forms in one piece, so I increased the baking with another 10 minutes. And this helped. Either it is my oven or the fact that 500 g apple (= 4 Danish apples) is a lot of water or a combination of both.
So be prepared to check, if 20 or 30 minutes is the baking for these muffins in your oven !!!!
