Welcome to My Kitchen Serenity!  I’m excited to share with you our favorite cinnamon applesauce muffin recipe!  Cinnamon sugar has always been a favorite for my children.  And I grew up on cinnamon sugar toast!  So, topping these muffins with cinnamon sugar was a no brainer.

This recipe calls for Bisquick instead of flour, which gives the muffins’ texture the slightest hint of a biscuit.  Oh, but they are still very much magnificent “muffins” my dear friends.  These muffins are moist and full of apple cinnamon flavor! Have them for dessert with your favorite coffee or tea.


How to Make Cinnamon Applesauce Muffins

Mix sugar, cinnamon, applesauce, egg, milk, vanilla extract, and oil in a large bowl.  Then add Bisquick and blend well with a whisk.  Mix just until blended because if you overmix, the muffins will be too dense.  Lightly grease muffin pan or use paper liners.  OXO offers a wonderful, heavy gauge muffin pan with easy grip sides…find it here.  Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full then bake at 400 for about 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  After baking, brush tops of muffins with melted butter.  Sprinkle tops with cinnamon sugar mixture.  Enjoy!  Makes 8-10 muffins.

What is the Best Way to Store Muffins?

You can store muffins at room temperature for up to 3 days if they’re stored in an airtight container.  You can also freeze muffins for up to 3 months if you wrap them tightly in aluminum foil or place in plastic freezer bags.
