These are great. I got 32 muffins out of the batter which was good as I wanted to take them to work. They are so good. I mean, really, really, really good. I put them in the break room and I don't think they lasted 15 minutes. This recipe is a definite keeper. Thanks Inez!

These muffins were extremely scrumptous. Both boys loved them. This is a real winner. I didn't have regular applesauce and used the chunky. Talking about something goooood, with chunks of apples to add. Thanx for posting.

I've been making these for awhile now and really enjoy them. They're quick and easy and use common ingredients. I've discovered I can substitute half the butter with an extra 1/2 cup more applesauce without sacrificing flavor. But, unlike so many baked goods that taste best fresh from the oven, I find I enjoy these much more if they're allowed to sit for several hours or even over night since time seems to blend the flavors more.

I cut the recipe in half, filled my tins 3/4 full, and turned out a dozen PERFECT muffins. These are moist, flavorful, and tender. I had some leftover applesauce and these were a terrific use for it. Thanks for the great recipe!

Awesome recipe dude! My sister takes classes at our church, and every week one of the parents takes snack for the entire 50 students. Since my mom is the hall moniter, we wern't supposed to have brought snack, but at the last minute the organizer for the classes called and said that we needed to. I made up some of these muffins and brought them. The classes loved them so much, the kids were swapping there fruit snacks for muffins! One teacher even had her kids come out to the hall and personally thank me! This recipe is definatly a keeper!

DH is hosting a training session this morning, and he wanted to take some breakfast for his trainees. Since yesterday was busy, the plan was for him to pick up donuts or muffins at the grocery store. I woke up early; DH was still snoring. I have been inspired by Meredith on her blog (Like Merchant Ships). She hosts an annual breakfast for her husband's colleagues ... fresh fruit, tea, and 300 homemade muffins. I'm no SuperWoman, but I figured that I could whip up 18 muffins for my Dear Husband's work. I got on Recipezaar and searched for 'applesauce muffins.' I chose this recipe because -- it had good reviews; and -- I had the ingredients on hand. I mixed these up in my stand mixer ... I think the dough would have been stiff to mix by hand. I added raisins because I know that some people have a problem with nuts. Then I made a dozen and started them cooking. After that, I added pecans to the rest of the batter and got the 2nd dozen baking. At 20 minutes, the muffins tested undone with a toothpick. At 25 minutes, they were slightly overdone. Still good enough to take to work, but those last few minutes made a big difference. My 3 taste testers pronounced them 'fine,' but I think they'd be even better if I had taken them out of the oven 2 or 3 minutes earlier. BTW, I got 33 muffins out of this batch, so I think the smaller size was a factor in the cooking time. I plan on making these again. Saturday. For DD's girl scouts. With enough practice ... and some good recipes, I can become a SuperWoman too.

Just a terrific way to use up some of my surplus applesauce. I've got quite a bit frozen and I'll be using some more of it to make these again. Thanks MizzNezz

I really really liked these muffins!! The texture was perfect, I especially loved the crispy muffin tops! I used cinnamon apple sauce, and did not need to add the extra cinnamon. Very yummy!

My husband took these to work and everyone loved them. They have a wonderful flavor. Just the right mix of spices.

I cut the recipe in half, and used about 1 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice, instead of the cinnamon, allspice, and cloves.
