Apple Raisin Mini Muffins

Apr 26, 2011 by

This is a family and crowd favourite adapted from Paula Deen. The original recipe called for walnuts but I try not to bake with nuts. Also, I incorporated whole wheat flour to increase the fiber content. I should probably warn you… These mini-muffins are highly addictive. These Apple Raisin Mini Muffins are a perfect gift too. Guaranteed to please!


Apple Raisin Mini Muffins

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Yield: This recipe yields about 4 dozen mini-muffins


  • 1 Cup Water
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Cups Grated Apples (Approximately 3 Royal Gala Apples)
  • 2 Cups Raisins
  • 1 Cup (2 sticks) Butter
  • 2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Freshly Grated Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Cloves
  • 2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 1/2 Cups All Purpose "Unbleached" Flour
  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees
  2. Combine the water, sugar, apples, butter, cinnamon and cloves in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
  3. In a large bowl, sift in the flour and baking soda.
  4. Add the cooled mixture to the bowl, a cup at a time, until combined. I find it best to use a spatula for this to get everything from the sides and the bottom incorporated.
  5. Fill greased miniature muffin tins with batter to the top.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes.


Enjoy these wonderful muffins!

      I certainly hope you did! You’re welcome hon! These are awesome little muffins to be enjoyed by our wonderful children <3

  2. I love that you added wheat flour to this. And their bite-sizeness makes them so much more dangerous to eat!

    • Chung-Ah, these are highly addictive. I’ve made them with regular flour also. These are a crowd pleaser! Every time I make them they vanish!!!! :-)
