Easy Cheesy Applesauce Muffins

We like these fresh out of the oven! They also make an excellent snack. To prepare them, I used 
the cinnamon-spiced applesauce I posted in yesterday’s blog.

Easy Cheesy Applesauce Muffins:

½ c. butter or margarine
⅔ c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
1-¾ c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon (see Note)
1 c. applesauce (canned or homemade)
½ c. grated sharp cheddar

Preheat oven to 350 deg. F. Cream butter and sugar together until no grainy feeling remains when you rub some of the batter between your thumb and index finger. Beat in eggs. Combine dry ingredients in a small, separate bowl. Add ⅓ of dry ingredients to batter, beating in well. Add ½ applesauce, continuing to beat. Repeat, ending with dry ingredients. Stir in cheddar. Spoon into ungreased paper liners in muffin pans, filling each ⅔ full. Sprinkle top of each muffin with a coating of Cinnamon Sugar (see Extra Note) or top with extra grated cheese. Bake 20-to-25 min., until toothpick inserted in centre of muffin comes out dry. Yields 1 dozen standard-sized muffins.

Note: See the Index for How to Make Cinnamon Sugar.

Beat together all ingredients, stirring in cheddar at the end.

Grate sharp cheddar.

Spoon into muffin pan liners.
Now you see it ... Now you don’t!
