Cinnamon Applesauce (Easy Microwave Recipe)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Island Girl 525

This is really easy and delicious applesauce. I left out the sugar completely and thought it was sweet enough. The recipe says that if you prefer a sweeter applesauce, choose red apples, such as Fuji or Gala, instead of adding more sugar. This recipe comes from the Everyday Food Magazine.

Great and fast applesauce. After mashing the cooked apples, I sprinkled the top with cinnamon/sugar mix - yum! Made for Spring 2014 Pick A Chef.
