Sugar-Topped Applesauce Muffins

My five brothers, two sisters and I grew up on a farm and built up hearty appetites doing various chores. It seemed no matter what I helped Mom cook was gobbled up. That encouraged me to spend more time in the kitchen!

    Love these ! My daughter calls them heaven food. I did add some vanilla. Also, tried this with chunky brown sugar applesauce and they turned out super ! I make honey butter to go with them.
