Upside-Down Double Apple Muffins

I am not a morning person. I don't like to miss my beauty sleep to get up and make breakfast for my family. So make ahead breakfasts are the norm in our house. Of these, apple muffins and banana muffins are the favorites. This recipe uses apple sauce as well as apple - hence the name. This is a healthy breakfast that gives you your proteins, fruits and carbohydrates all in one go. And of course, you can make this ahead of time.
Recipe Source:Mott's 
Serves 12
2 medium apples
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs water + 1tbs lemon juice
½ cup raisins (or cranberries)
4 tbs butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup apple sauce
1 egg
1 ¾ cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350° F. Cut apple in half and remove core. Cut each half into slices approximately 1/8-inch thick. Stir together brown sugar and water in medium saucepan. Add apple slices. Cook, stirring gently over medium heat, until apple slices are softened, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle raisins in bottom of lined muffin pans. Arrange apple slices over raisins, drizzling with brown sugar sauce. Set aside. In large bowl or mixer, beat butter with granulated sugar until thoroughly combined. Add apple sauce and egg. In separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Gently blend into apple sauce mixture. Spoon batter over apples and raisins, spreading evenly. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool 15 minutes before turning muffins out onto wire rack to cool completely.

  16. Yes dear you can use normal jaggery if you don't get semi solid jaggery. But then you have to crush the jaggery into powder form and do add a cup of water along with it. Then pour it in a heavy bottom pan so that the jaggery doesn't burnt. Do let me know the result. You will love this....with just 2 ingredients.
