Apple Sauce Muffins


488 g Tree Top Apple Sauce

226 g butter, softened

402 g sugar

100 g eggs

2.5 g vanilla

512 g all-purpose flour

3 g cinnamon

1.30 g allspice

1.30 g ground cloves

Preheat oven to 400 F.  Grease muffin pan or use paper cups in the pan.

Beat butter at medium speed with electric mixer until creamy, approximately 5 minutes. Add sugar; beat well. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Set butter mixture aside.

In a medium bowl, sift flour and next 3 ingredients together; stir in pecans.

Combine apple sauce and baking soda, stirring until mixture is foamy; add to butter mixture alternately with flour mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin pans; filling cups two-thirds full.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until muffins are golden. Remove from pans immediately.
