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.
