Applesauce Muffins

This applesauce muffin recipe is not difficult to make. Its also something that the kids will enjoy helping you make. They can test to see if the muffins are done by sticking a fork in them. If the fork comes up clean then they are done. They also enjoy dipping the muffins in the butter and sugar. Most of all, they enjoy gobbling them up.
