Apfel-Muffins

i have been living on these! this recipe makes about 12 jumbo cupcakes (so 24 regular sized ones)


* 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons baking soda
* 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 8 tablespoons Earth Balance
* 2 cups sugar
* 1/2 cup apple sauce (unsweetened)
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 4 cups coarsely shredded apples, such as Macintosh (about 1 3/4 pounds)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two muffin tins with paper liners. Whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; set aside. Cream butter and sugar (using a mixer) until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Mix in apple sauce and vanilla.
2. Mix in shredded apples to butter mixture. Add flour mixture; mix, scraping down sides of bowl as needed, until just combined.
3. Fill lined cups halfway with batter; bake until tops are springy to the touch, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from tins. When completely cool, frost cupcakes with something yummy like a Tofutti cream cheese based frosting.


it's just a yummy spice cake and the shredded apples give it the consistency of a carrot cake. soooo good!

also, i've been known to make a dark rum simple syrup and brush the tops of these bad boys when they get out of the oven. and then, frost as usual.

delicious with some hot apple cider!

YUM!
