Soak raisins in a little hot water. Mix flours, polenta, cane sugar, baking powder and orange zest in a bowl. Stir in the eggs, then add Greek yogurt and milk and mix well.
Peel two Golden Delicious apples, cut them into cubes (not too small) and sprinkle with a little lemon juice. Add apple cubes and well squeezed raisins to the mixture. Fill the mixture into 12 cupcake molds until a few mm below the edge.
Cut the remaining apple with a mandolin, sprinkle the apple slices with a little lemon juice and place one slice on top of each cupcake. Sprinkle with sugar and bake at 180°C for about 25 minutes (do the toothpick test, but don’t bake them too long or they will get hard).
Remove from the oven and wait at least 10 minutes before unmolding the cupcakes.
