Applesauce Spice Muffins
Recipe found in "Totally Muffins Cookbook"
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
1 cup diced peeled apple such as Fuji or Golden Delicious
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon mixed with 3 tablespoons sugar for topping
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease or line muffin tins with paper cups.
Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and cloves in a medium bowl. In another large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, oil, milk, apple, lemon juice and applesauce. Add flour mixture to liquid ingrdients and stir just until flour disappears.
Spoon into muffin cups. Sprinkle tops with cinnamon sugar mixture and bake 25-30 minutes until tester comes out clean.
I've made these quiet a few times, and they are really good. For the topping mixture they don't specify weather you use white or or brown sugar-but I use brown sugar-it makes the topping that much sweeter.
I've used different apples different times, this time i used Gala apples-it seems to have turned out quiet well.
