Bite-Sized Applesauce Muffins

Ask my sons... all three will agree that their favorite muffin is my bite-sized APPLESAUCE MUFFINS. I have no memory of where I found this recipe. It's just one I have made for so many years...for so many events...and especially for my boys! After leaving home, each of them has called to ask for this recipe (and Drummer Boy "borrowed" mini-muffin pans...6 months ago...and has never returned them!) These luscious bites of muffin are so delicious that it's difficult to stop eating them. They are definitely addictive! They are best when warm...and with coffee or tea.

Bite-Sized Applesauce Muffins

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking powder

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
cinnamon sugar (mix, to taste, sugar and cinnamon...I love lots of cinnamon!!!)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Stir the first 7 ingredients together until all are combined. Do not over mix.
Drop by teaspoonsful into a greased miniature cupcake pan.
Bake for 15 minutes.

Remove from pan while warm. Dip the top of each muffin in melted butter, then cinnamon sugar.
Makes 36 mini muffins.

I love when I spy the words "family favorite". That's how you know a recipe is worth trying.

Hi Jane,

The cabinet was in Springhill. I called but they never returned my call and I do not see it listed today. Sheesh! I already had it painted, placed and filled!

My son loves these muffins! He wants me to make them again this coming weekend. I am going to make a double batch and freeze half of them. That way he can have for a snack whenever he wants.

Jane, thanks for all your support over the loss of my beloved dog. I'm taking it one day at a time and I know it will take awhile to adjust, but it really sucks! Thanks, the beach did help.

These muffins look so good and I'm with you — I love lots of cinnamon!

I'm having a giveaway, so be sure to stop by.

Hi Jane! OK those look delicious. But I wanted to thank you for the comment and let you know that I find the oysters in Rocky Point, Tampa. I live over near the airport off of the Courtney Campbell Causeway, if you are familiar with the area. They are everywhere here :)
