Pin It

Easy to make, but hard to resist! Make these for breakfast or a go-to snack for the kids after school. Makes 12 muffins.

½ cup Country Cream butter, softened

½ cup sugar

2 Eggland’s Best eggs

¾ cup Ela Family Farms applesauce

1¾ cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt


¼ cup Country Cream butter, melted

½ cup sugar

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Place softened butter and sugar into large mixing bowl. Cream butter and sugar, mixing with a hand mixer or stand mixer on medium speed 1-2 minutes, or until butter mixture is pale yellow, light, and fluffy. With the mixer on low, add the eggs one at a time, beating 20 seconds after each. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat the mixture for 2 minutes. Mix in applesauce. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into batter and beat on low speed until combined. Scoop batter into lined muffin tin and bake at 350° F for 12-18 minutes, or until golden.

For topping, combine cinnamon and sugar. Before the muffins cool completely, dip each top in the melted butter, then the cinnamon sugar mixture.
