These wonderful and simple muffins are my mom’s recipe. An absolute family favorite growing up, these are perfect in the morning with a cup of coffee, or warmed up and topped with ice cream.
- 1 stick butter
- 1 c. sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 t. vanilla
- 2 c. flour
- 1 t. all spice
- 1/2 t. cloves
- 2 t. cinnamon
- 1 t. baking soda
- 1/2 jar applesauce (about 1 cup)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl with a standing mixer. Beat in the egg, then add vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, spices, and soda. Add to the butter mixture, alternating with the applesauce.
Line muffin pan with muffin cups, or spray generously with Pam. Fill each cup about 3/4 full – this recipe should make 12 muffins.
Bake for 13 minutes, or until the muffin tops are firm.
