Method

Muffins:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, with the rack in the centre of the oven. Line muffin tins with parchment paper.*
  2. Soak the raisins in hot water for 20 minutes and then drain well.
  3. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl, then whisk in the oil and the applesauce.
  4. Whisk in the salt and the baking powder. The baking powder will get foamy – that’s ok.
  5. Stir in the raisins, then the flour, walnuts and nutmeg.
  6. Stir to combine the dry ingredients. The batter will be quite moist, like a cake batter.
  7. Divide among the muffin tins.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the muffins test as done – the tops are firm and when you put a knife in the centre it comes out almost clean, perhaps with a few moist crumbs attached.
  9. Cool for 5 minutes in the pans, and then finish cooling on a rack.

Labna Icing:

  1. whip together 4 tablespoons of Barambah Organic Labna, 2 tablespoons of honey and a squeeze of lemon.

*We like to use parchment paper muffin liners for these muffins, ‘regular’ paper muffin liners will stick.
