Spiced Applesauce Muffins- One of My Favorite and Most Asked for Recipes
Spiced Applesauce Muffins
I love this recipe, and have had it for a long time. I found it when I was first married, then tweaked it over time until I liked it even more than I did initially. What made it a keeper in our family, besides the fact that we just liked it, was that once we took them to a Thanksgiving Potluck, and a few different people asked for the recipe. They don't look that fancy, but are packed with a spicy goodness that balances out a meal. Or, they can just be their own meal, say with some fruit for a breakfast. I love the smell of all the spices together. In some ways it reminds me of when my Mom would make spiced apples when I was a kid. Those were so good, and when she took them out of the oven, I couldn't wait to have those. A great treat, that was healthier than I realized.
Spiced Applesauce Muffins
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
One half cup of applesauce, you can use regular or chunky applesauce
One and a half cups of flour
One half cup of vegetable oil
One cup of sugar
One teaspoon of allspice
One half teaspoon of cinnamon
One half teaspoon of nutmeg
One quarter teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 quarter teaspoon of salt
One half teaspoon of baking powder
Variation: You can also use a small amount of cut up apples, finely diced, but I often will get the chunky applesauce.
Directions for spiced applesauce muffins
First, I combine all the dry ingredients together and sift them together in a small bowl.
Then mix together the oil and the applesauce in a larger bowl, and slowly add the dry mixture above, until all is fully combined.
Line a muffin pan with paper liners, or spray with non stick cooking spray. I spoon in batter into each tin, about half full.
Bake at 400 degrees for about fifteen to twenty minutes until they are done.
Serve with butter or eat by themselves, or with jam, and fresh coffee or hot tea goes well with these. Hope you enjoy them.
