Apple Raisin Muffins (Mini)

Mini muffins are perfect for kids and adults alike. These muffins are tasty and make a yummy snack. This recipe makes close to 5 dozen mini muffins, so put some in the freezer for later!

-Paula Deen (with some changes)

1 cup water
2 cups sugar
2 cups grated apples (2 large granny smith)
1 cup raisins
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
3/4 cup chopped pecans
2 tsp. baking soda
3 1/2 cups flour

Combine the water, sugar, apples, raisins, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a saucepan; bring to boil. Remove the pan from the heat and cool completely.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 if using dark pan).

In a large bowl, stir the nuts and baking soda into the flour. Add the cooled mixture to the bowl, and stir until blended. Fill greased miniature muffin tins with batter to the top. Bake for 15 minutes.
