Sugar-top apple and raisins muffins

Those filled with apples, raisins and spices muffins are extremely good. They have a lovely crunchy and sweet top, inside they are moist and aromatic. For me they are the perfect muffins. They do not look spectacular but their taste is divine. Good with freshly brewed tea :) The recipe come from 'Muffin sampler' by  Jan Siegris.

Ingredients for 12-14 muffins:
  • 100g raisins
  • 125ml water
  • 180g flour
  • 150g wholewheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 130g sugar
  • 60ml grape seed oil
  • 160g applesauce
  • 160g baked apples
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Put the raisins into a small bowl pour over the water. Soak the raisins in the water for at least 15 minutes. 

Preheat the oven  180C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

In  a large bowl combine the flours, baking powder, soda and freshly grated nutmeg.

In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together the egg and sugar until fluffy.  Stir in the oil, applesauce and baked apples. Add this mixture into the dry ingredients mixture until just moist. At last gently fold in the raisins with their water. 

Spoon the batter into paper cases, about 2/3 full. 

In a small bowl combine remaining sugar with cinnamon. Sprinkle over the batter in each cup. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Leave in the baking tin for a few minutes then transfer to the wire rack to cool. Enjoy !
