Snack Time

Anika found a recipe for Applesauce Muffins on the Nick Jr website she printed off and requested that we make today. They are just about done baking and are smelling rather delicious!

Here's the recipe:

2 c all-purpose flour
3/4 c sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 lg egg, lightly beaten
1 c unsweetened applesauce
1/2 c butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease of line 12 cup muffin pan.
2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in medium bowl. Whisk to blend.
3. Add egg, applesauce and melted butter. Stir until just blended. Spoon into prepared pan.
4. Bake until puffed and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 18-20 minutes. Transfer to wire rack and cool 5 minutes. Invert and cool completely.


Ok, so they are done and they are really tasty. Anika talked me into putting frosting on hers saying that, because they are in liners, they are cupcakes and they have to have frosting. Oh, and because she is wearing a shirt with a great big cupcake on the front, she also needs frosting on her muffin so it will match the cupcake on her shirt.

It's been a fun afternoon. Olivia put up a sign in our front window that says "The Yummy Shop." I'm on call until 7 PM tonight at work, but it doesn't look like I'll have to go in - KNOCK ON WOOD! Now it is time to get ready for dance class!
