Apple Raisin Muffins with Caramel Drizzle

Makes : 8 muffins

Ingredients :

For Muffins :
  • 1 apple ( about 3/4 cup, peeled, cored and chopped )
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 2 tsp.  lemon juice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp.  baking powder
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
For Caramel Glaze :
  • 1/8 cup butter
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp.  milk

Method :
  • Preheat oven to 190 C / 375 F. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  • Combine apple, raisins and lemon juice in a bowl; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, sift together flour and baking powder. Add sugar and salt to the flour mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, combine egg, milk and butter; mix well.
  • Fold the wet ingredients together with the dry until just combined. Fold in apple raisins mixture.
  • Spoon the batter equally into each paper liner. Bake for 18 - 20 minutes or until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Stand in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Meanwhile, make the caramel glaze.
  • Put butter, brown sugar and milk in a small saucepan. Cook on medium-high heat, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves completely and the glaze is slightly thickened.
  • Remove from the heat and immediately drizzle the glaze over muffins ( as it sets quickly ) and and let it set.
  • If you want more glaze, then double the glaze ingredients and dip the muffin tops in the glaze.
