A few months ago a reader, Charlotte, sent me a recipe she found on the Meijer web site. It was a gluten free recipe, but she substituted sorghum flour for soy flour. Recently I got around to trying the recipe using sorghum flour like she did, and I was very pleased with the muffins.
My family really like them too, but they sunk on the top a little, and as I made them I kept thinking of ways I might change the recipe. So I did just that.
I had a slight problem though. When I started experimenting with the recipe, I forgot that it made 24 muffins and thought it was only supposed to make 12! I ended up cutting back on ingredients but still ended up with 18 muffins. As I was filling the muffin tins the last time I suddenly remember the recipe was for 24. I told myself I would be doing at least one more experiment because who wants a recipe that makes 18 muffins?
But then I pulled that batch out of the oven and realized they were perfect. I didn’t want to experiment with the recipe any longer. And so, before our apple themed month of September is over, I give you an applesauce muffin recipe that makes 18 muffins.
I have read at times that you should fill empty muffin cups with water. I didn’t do that. If you find it helps, though, then go right ahead.
