Freezer Cooking Day: Applesauce Chocolate Muffins

Saturday, January 22, 2011

I used my free Saturday to stock up the deep freeze with easy to tote muffins. They're our go-to breakfast on busy mornings and when I need a batch of snacks for preschool. I "healthified" a few recipes:
Applesauce Chocolate Muffins
Glorious Morning Muffins
Coconut Cream Muffins
PB & J Muffins

I also made up some Sweet Potato Muffins last night.

Tips for freezer day cooking: Gather all the stuff you'll need for all the batches you're making and have a hot soapy sink full of suds ready to go. You're gonna need it. Now, go get busy!!

Applesauce Chocolate Muffins

*Adapted from a cake recipe from the Spears Victorian Sampler Tea Room recipe book (it once was my extended family's restaurant in Eureka Springs, AR)
1 C Sugar (was 1 1/2 C)
1/2 C Shortening
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 C white flour, 1 C wheat flour (was 2 C white)
1/4 tsp sea salt (was 1/2 tsp salt)
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp cocoa
2 C applesauce (I used no added sugar)
1/2 C chocolate chips
*I skipped the usual addition of pecans and a sugar/cinnamon sprinkle on top)

Cream together sugar & shortening. Add eggs & vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients and add applesauce. Pour into muffin tin(s)... greased cups or use baking cup liners. Bake 18 min at 350 F.

Makes 18 muffins.

EASY Glaze for Muffins/Cupcakes
Want to have a light topper on your muffins or cupcakes but don't want the calories of a heavy frosting? Just mix 2 Tbsp of milk with about 3 cups of powdered sugar and mix. This will make a night light glaze to use on ANY baked good! EASY!!
