1 box spice cake mix
1 apple (I just use what I have, granny smith apples are good if buying)
2 cups applesauce (I add cinnamon apple sauce for extra flavor!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
Peel and chop 1 apple. You want small, roughly quarter-inch pieces.
In a small bowl, add a couple tablespoons of cake mix to the chopped apples and mix to coat. The dry ingredients coat the fruit so they don't sink when baked. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add the two cups of apple sauce to the box of spice cake mix. It's easy to hand stir but you can use a mixer if you like.
Fold in chopped apple pieces. You just want to get the fruit mixed into the batter.
Line, grease or spray your muffin tins. I find using paper liners the least work.
Scoop 1 large scoop of batter into the muffin cups. I use this type of scooper. It keeps the muffins portioned the same and it keeps your muffin pan neater (with no big dough drips on it)
Bake 18 to 20 minutes. Test with a wooden skewer/toothpick to see if done. The
Cool on a wire rack and then I like serving these warm!
This apple spice muffin recipe makes 12 good-sized flavorful muffins. With little chunks of slightly crunchy apples. I love the texture of the apple pieces in the muffins. And the smell is so appetizing!
These are really filling muffins. You'll notice they are heavy. That would be from the real apple pieces. The apple sauce and the apple pieces guarantee that this recipe creates a moist muffin (with a healthy amount of fiber!).
