Applesauce Muffins

Made these muffins for supper tonight. I confess they aren’t the best muffins I’ve ever had or even the best muffins I’ve ever made. But they were quick, easy, moist and could have any number of tasty variations that I will be trying in the future. So, here’s the recipe: mostly for my own reference, but feel free to try them yourself…

1/2 cup softened butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup applesauce

2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon cloves

Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg, vanilla and applesauce. Mix well. Add dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.

Spoon into greased or papered muffin tins. Makes about 15 muffins.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until pick comes out clean.
