Servings: Makes 12 muffins
Ingredients 2 1/3 cup flour1 cup buttermilk1/3 cup sugar1/4 cup applesauce2 tablespoons vegetable oil1 egg1 teaspoon baking powder1 teaspoon cinnamon1/2 teaspoon baking soda1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon nutmeg1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Preheat oven to 400° F. Combine all dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Combine all liquid ingredients. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry and mix lightly until a batter forms. It will look lumpy, which is perfectly fine.
Cover a muffin tin lightly with cooking oil spray. Use an ice cream scoop to fill the wells of the tin about 3/4 full. (Secret: Make sure the edges and unfilled portions of the muffin tin are clean. This helps the muffins rise up nice and high.)
Pop in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes. Serve warm or cool.
