- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 5 teaspoons baking powder
- In a small bowl, cover the raisins with water and let sit 1 minute, then drain.
- Allow raisins to stand for 30 minutes to absorb the moisture that remains on their skins.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Grease standard muffin tins, line them with cupcake papers or spray them with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, apple, applesauce, walnuts, herbs, onion, sugar, salt and pepper.
- Combine the flour and baking powder and sift together.
- Add the flour mixture and raisins to the milk mixture and stir with a fork until the batter is blended.
- Spoon batter into prepared muffin tins, filling each cup almost full.
- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.
- Remove from the tins and transfer the muffins to a rack to cool slightly.
- Serve warm.
- Makes 12 muffins.

I am the wife of a submariner!! My husband just finished serving on a Trident Nuclear Submarine for the past five years! We are just starting a 3 year shore duty tour and loving it. We are so happy to be a family we have four kids under the age of 8. They are the whole entire world to me! My all time favorite cookbook would have to be the Cake mix doctor. I love to bake.
