Apple Cinnamon Minicakes

What could be a better combination than apple + raisins + cinnamon + maple syrup + brown sugar?  Hahaha... that's pretty much the secret to these soft, fluffy, aromatically perfumed minicakes. 

Oops... no longer a secret.

Apple Cinnamon Minicakes
Makes about 20 minicakes.

210g flour
130g brown sugar
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon powder (depending on your preference for cinnamon)
120g butter
120ml milk
2 eggs
90ml maple syrup (the best quality you can get)
1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
30g raisins

Dump all ingredients except the diced apples and raisins into your mixing bowl.
Beat till you get a smooth batter.  
Then fold in the diced apples and raisins till evenly distributed.
Spoon batter into muffin cups.
Bake at 160*C for about 20 min till done. 
Cool on a wire rack, and resist the temptation to pop one in your mouth while it's still hot!

My pictures really don't do justice to this recipe.  I assure you that these are one of the best bakes I've come across.  

Now, if any of you know of a better recipe than this, please please please tell me!
