Cinnamon Sugar "Donut" Muffins

Cinnamon sugar donut muffin spice cake mix thingies?

I figured that wouldn't make a good name.

Great for back to school mornings. Check out how easy these things are.

1 box spice cake mix

3 eggs, beaten

1 jar of applesauce (at least 16 oz)

1 stick butter, melted

cinnamon sugar

Combine cake mix and applesauce. Add egg. Mix together and pour into muffin tins. Bake at 350 for around 20 minutes. Once they come out, dip in melted butter then dip in cinnamon sugar.

After I made these I realized I had wanted to add maybe some pumpkin pie spice to the mix and maple extract but I forgot. Hey I was watching Cops. You know, cook during the commercial breaks ;o)

After I make muffins, I usually freeze most of them. If I baked them in paper liners then I throw them in a freezer bag and they are good to go. If I didn't bake in liners, then I put them on a cookie sheet and sit them in the freezer for a little while. That way they don't stick together once frozen.

Breads, muffins, pancakes and waffles freeze so well. It's always a good idea to bake double batches of these things and put half in freezer.

This recipe can be seen at the grocery cart challenge :o)
