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

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.

      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!!!! :-)
