Applesauce Muffins

This is another recipe my mom has made for years. I mostly remember her making them and taking them to school if it was our turn to bring a snack. They are one of my favorite muffins. Recently another blogger had posted on Facebook that her daughter, who is in 4H, was looking for muffin recipes to make for her project. So we dug up the recipe and I shared it with her. I then decided to make a batch and thought I would share it with all of you as well! I hope you enjoy!

1 c. Butter/margarine softened
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 c. applesauce
4 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1 c. powdered sugar

 Cream butter

Gradually add sugar and beat well

Add eggs, 1 at a time and beat
Add applesauce and mix well
Combine the dry ingredients
 Add to the creamed mixture and mix well

 Fill greased muffin pans or cupcake liner lined muffin pans 3/4 full.

I used this scoop to scoop out my batter. It is just a 1/2 cup (I'm guessing) Ice Cream scoop. It works so well and the batter comes out of it so easy and it's less messy!
Bake at 350 degrees for 14 minutes or until done.
Transfer to wire racks and sprinkle with powdered sugar which I forgot to do and didn't realize until the next day!!!! So that's why the ones in the pictures don't have powdered sugar on them.

NOTE: Batter will keep in refrigerator for 1 week.

Yield: 7 dozen mini muffin 3 dozen regular sized muffins


  1. How many dozen do you think your mom made with two girls in school? These were also well liked and not as sweet as regular cookies or cupcakes.

  2. My boys love Applesauce Muffins. I'm pinning this recipe for the next time they want to bake! Thanks for linking up to the Country Fair Blog Party!
