Applesauce Raisin Muffins, Cold Weather Goodness






 Cold weather weekend mornings are perfect for homemade goodness at breakfast or mid-day snacking. Better yet if these muffins started with homemade applesauce!




This recipe was probably cut from a Taste of Home magazine but who knows from what issue.


MOTHER'S APPLESAUCE MUFFINS

4 cups flour (you can use 1/2 all-purpose and 1/2 oat or wheat)
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbs ground allspice
2 tsp baking soda

Combine and sift to blend these four dry ingredients in a large bowl.

1 cup butter (soften in microwave if right out of refrigerator)
2 cups sugar

Cream the butter and the sugar in a mixing bowl
Then beat in:

2 eggs
2 cups applesauce
2 tbsp vanilla extract

Fold the butter/sugar mixture into the dry mixture and stir just until moistened. 
Don't over mix or muffins can be tough.

Grease muffin pans
Pour the batter into 24 muffin cups about 3/4 full each

Bake at 350 degrees F
20 - 25 minutes or until a toothpick tests done

Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing or muffins may stick.
Cool on a wire rack

Yield 2 dozen
Freeze for later if desired


Enjoy this old-fashioned, healthy recipe!
Ideal for a quick, nutritious breakfast, lunch or anytime snack.
Perfect to make ahead and save for holiday gift giving and party contributions.
