Recipe for Muffins – Apple Muffins

These apple muffins are always a hit! They are moist, loaded with flavor and keep beautifully. In fact, the older they get, the better they get. Serve these at your next brunch and you will have a happy bunch of people. They are also great as a snack, for lunch boxes or anytime of the day. Here is what you are going to need for these:

½ cup melted, unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. cloves
¼ tsp. nutmeg
¼ tsp. allspice
1 ½ cups apple sauce
4 cups peeled, cored and chopped red apples

• Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
• In a bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and spices.
• In another bowl, mix together the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat until creamy.
• Alternate the flour and apple sauce into the butter mixture.
• Mix in the apples. Do not over-beat.
• Butter a muffin pie very well.
• Scoop in the batter. Bake for about 20 minutes.
• Cool for a few minutes in the pan.
• Remove carefully and cool on wire rack.

    Hi,

    I just wanted to stop by to say I love your videos. I didn’t learn to cook in my adolescence like many other young ladies, but I’m learning now (with your help of course). I just want to say thanks! Especially, since most of the ingredients i have already or they are very affordable at the grocery store!

    Thank You So Much,

    Kinma

    Just curious, was the apple sauce out of a jar? And was it plain or cinnamon apple sauce?

    Sometimes I boil apples and puree them for this. Sometimes I use apple sauce in a jar. I always use plain. Thanks for coming by!
