Quick pause for a note about apple butter. I love the stuff! Daniel's grandparents keep us well supplied with the real deal made in a copper kettle in West Virginia. I like to use it in baking as a substitute for oil. If you don't have any on hand, you can totally substitute apple sauce with some cinnamon added in.
Step 5: Spoon batter into a lined muffin tin.
Step 6: Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
Step 7: Enjoy!
