Maple Butter Tart Muffins


1 and ½ cup raisins

¾ cup granulated sugar

½ cup butter, cut into chunks

2 eggs, beaten

½ cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla, rum or butterscotch flavouring

1 and ½ cup all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt

½ cup chopped walnuts

¼ cup PEI Maple Syrup



Place first 5 ingredients in a heavy bottomed sauce pan. Cook over medium high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture is hot, slightly thickened and beginning to bubble, approximately 4-5 minutes.Place in fridge, uncovered and allow to cool.

Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease a 12 muffin pan tin or use papers in each. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and make a well in the middle. Add warm raisin mixture to well and mix until blended. Stir in nuts. Bake in oven until golden brown, approximately 15-17 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately pour 1 teaspoon of maple syrup over each muffin.

Allow to set for 10 minutes before removing to rack.
