Morning Muffins!

Last Wednesday I hosted my knitting group.
We've been knitting together for years.
We meet once a week and rotate around
to knit at each other's houses.
It's a totally low maintenance group.
The hostess is not expected to supply anything
except a place to meet.
However, being good Southern woman that we are,
the hostess always has coffee and tea available
and more often than not,
some sort of baked goodie to nibble on.
Since I try to only bake when people are coming,
my knitting group day is a fine time to try new recipes.
The January 2012, edition of SOUTHERN LIVING
provided me with

Applesauce Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel Topping

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl whisk together:
4 cups baking mix (Bisquick)
1/2 c. sugar
2 t. ground cinnamon
Make a well in center of mixture

In a small bowl, whisk together
2/3 c. chunky applesauce
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 large eggs

Add to sugar mixture,

stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Spoon batter into a lightly greased 12-cup muffin pan,
filling almost completely full.
(My muffin cups are a bit smaller than one cup,
so I got 18 muffins, which were plenty big enough.)
Sprinkle Cinnamon Streusel Topping over batter.

Cinnamon Streusel Topping
Whisk together until blended:
1/3 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
3 T. all-purpose baking mix
1/4 t. cinnamon
Stir 2 T. melted butter into this mixture
until well blended and crumbly.

Bake at 400 degrees for 18 - 20 minutes.
Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes.
Remove from pan to a wire rack.

Add a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!
