PostHeaderIcon Just Desserts: Applesauce Gems

This Week: Applesauce Gems
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup applesauce

Preheat oven to 350° F.

In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and spices.

In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar; add egg and beat until blended. Stir in flour mixture in 2 additions, alternately with applesauce, until just blended each time. Do not beat.

Turn into buttered muffin pan cups (each about 2 1/2" across the top and 1" deep), filling them about half full.

Bake until golden and cake tester in center comes out clean -- about 25 minutes. Loosen edges and serve hot. Makes 10 muffins.

Serving suggestions:
For dessert, serve with fresh whipped cream. For breakfast or brunch, serve with honey butter.
