Taste of Fall: Glazed Apple Raisin Muffis

Pumpkin spice, this pumpkin spice that. I'll be the first to admit that I am always down for pumpkin recipes at the first sign of fall, but in all honesty I think the apple is way overlooked here. I actually get more excited to find good apple recipes in the autumn and nearly clap with joy when the first of the harvest hits the store shelves. There are so many different apple varieties, how could you not love all the recipe possibilities here? While I was doing my grocery shopping last week, I loaded up on two paper bags full of a variety of apples. I didn't have any recipes in mind when I purchased them, but I knew that I would soon put them to good use. I did go to my trusty source, Golden Blossom Honey, and ended up saving a few recipes that I can't wait to try soon. One recipe immediately grabbed by eye because it was just screaming with all the flavors of fall that I love: Glazed Apple Raisin Muffins

With a sticky-bun type of a bottom, I couldn't decide if these were more of a side dish or a dessert. Either way, they were awesome! I do have a few tips for making these. Do not overfill the glaze in the bottom of the cups because it does liquefy and  will run over the pan. You could always place a cookie sheet under your muffin tin to prevent messy spills. Also, remove the muffins from the tin while they are still warm. Do not let the glaze cool completely or you won't be able to remove the muffins from the tin. You could also put the glaze on top of the muffins instead of on the bottom if you prefer. Make sure you eat one fresh out of the oven. They are roll your eyes into the back of your head good when you take a bite. Thankfully, this recipe makes at least 12 muffins because you are going to want to eat more than one. 

3 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/3 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons water
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup apple juice
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup finely chopped Granny Smith apple

Apple or Pumpkin? Which fall flavor do you prefer more?


  1. so what you are saying is that it has a saggy, sticky bottom? :) It does seem very juicy and fragrant! I'd take apples over pumpkins any time of the year. I do love to put quinces in sponges and muffins, but you don't have them there!

    1. Yes, it's a very soft, sweet bottom because of the glaze but next time I'll but the glaze on top of the muffins to make removal from the pan a lot easier. It really is so fragrant and moist, such a yummy fall dessert.

    2. maybe it might look like an upside down muffin cake if you put a slice of apple in that glaze at the bottom?

  2. Look at you go. I'd probably prefer apple at my sea. apples sure have many a variety indeed.

  3. Apple raisin muffins sound amazing! They sound like the perfect fall treat. Om nom nom.

  4. Apple raisin muffins sound delicious. I love all of these recipes that you've been sharing with honey in them. Honey is a great addition to baked goods. Yummo!

  5. I love raisin bread but have never tried raisin muffins before, I am going to have to give this recipe a go!

  8. My daughter and were just talking about looking for new muffin recipes. She will LOVE this recipe! Thank you for sharing it!

  9. There's nothing like baked goods to make this season even more better. The glaze can be a little tricky but it's really a great recipe.

  10. I love a good muffin recipe, especially since it's one of the things that I like having for breakfast. I think this one's a must try, it has fall flavors that I love.

  11. I love the flavors in this muffin recipe. It sure looks like it will be another favorite recipe. I will make a batch and ask my nephews and nieces to do a taste test. I am sure I will be given the highest score. Haha.

  12. That's a hard one I like both! Maybe apple, but it really depends on my mood.

    These do look good!

  13. These look absolutely delicious. I would love to make these for the kids for breakfast.

  14. A toss up... so many good flavors for fall. Love Pumpkin, Apples and even Cranberries. I'm going to pin this, sounds delicious.

  15. Love the tips. I think I'd like the glaze on the top or the bottom. I definitely would eat one warm out of the oven! :)

  16. Bookmarked this recipe too! I love a good muffin, especially with my morning coffee. And Granny Smith apples are tart which cuts the overall sweetness. Have a great rest of the weekend, Theresa!
