Applesauce muffins

On Halloween morning Rosebud and I tried a new recipe.  Oh my.  They're my new favorite.

I employed my budding chef and she did everything but the measuring.  

They come together really quickly and are a great way to use homemade applesauce, although you don't taste the applesauce.  They are just moist and cinnamon-y from the topping. 

 I love her concentration face.

After they bake, cool just slightly and dip in butter, then cinnamon/sugar.  Perfect for kids to help with.

When your mom has you dipping them too soon, they might be a little hot still.  

But licking the cinnamon sugar off your fingers makes up for it.


Applesauce Muffins
from Simple as That


1 stick softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 3/4 cup flour (I use half white/ half whole wheat)
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt


1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time.
Mix in applesauce.  Whisk together dry ingredients and add to mixer.  Mix just till combined.

Bake in greased muffin tins 16-20 min at 350 degrees.  While baking, melt butter.  In a separate bowl combine cinnamon and sugar.

After muffins are baked, while still warm, dip in melted butter and then cinnamon sugar mixture.  Makes 12 muffins.

Delicious! We've made them three times since Halloween.  We hope you love them too!
