       1 lg Granny apple, cut in quarter
            Peeled, cored and coarsely
       1 tb Sugar
     1/2 ts Cinnamon
     2/3 c  Flour
     1/4 c  Light-brown sugar
     1/2    Stick butter or margarine
     1/2 ts Cinnamon
       1 c  Flour
     1/2 ts Baking soda
     1/2 ts Cinnamon
     1/4 ts Salt
     2/3 c  Sugar
     1/2 c  Veg. oil
       1 lg Egg
       1 ts Vanilla extract
       2 tb Raisins
       1 c  Confectioners' sugar mixed
            With 2 tsp. water
   Heat oven to 325. Grease and flour 12 regular-size muffin cups or line with
   paper liners. In small bowl, mix apple pieces, sugar and cinnamon. Stir
   topping ingredients in a small bowl with a fork or rub together with
   fingertips until large crumbs form. BATTER: Whisk flour, baking soda,
   cinnamon and salt in a small bowl until blended. In mixer bowl, beat sugar
   into oil at high speed. Reduce speed to med. and beat in egg and vanilla.
   Drain liquid from apple (less than a tsp) and add to mixture. Reserve
   apple. Reduce speed to low. Beat in flour mixture until blended. Batter
   will be very thick and look impossibly gooey. Beat in apple and raisins,
   breaking up apple a bit with mixer. Spoon batter into prepared cups.
   Scatter on topping mixture and gently press into batter. Bake 30-35 min.
   until crumbs are crisp and cupcakes golden brown, but still somewhat soft
   in the middle. Turn off oven. Leave cupcakes in oven 5 min. longer or until
   tops spring back when lightly pressed. Cool in pan on wire rack. Serve warm
   or at room temperature, drizzled with confectioners' sugar mixture.
