Apple Cinnamon Muffins and Doughnuts
I love the flavors of Fall, and Apple Cinnamon fits right in!
Apple Cinnamon Muffins or Doughnuts
1 3/4 Cups All Purpose G F flour, with xanthan gum already added ( I used Tom Sawyer, Betty Crocker GF flour, Better Batter also works well in this recipe)
2 Teaspoons additive free ground Cinnamon
1/2 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Active Dry Yeast
1 Cup Packed Pure Brown Sugar
2 Eggs beaten
1/2 Stick softened Butter (or ¼ cup gf oil)
1 Cup additive & sugar free Applesauce
1/2 Cup pure sweet Buttermilk
(optional 1 Cup chopped pecans)
In large mixing bowl whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, yeast, and brown sugar. Add eggs, butter, applesauce, and buttermilk. Mix on high just until smooth. Don’t over mix. Let batter rest for about 15- 20 minutes. Then fold in pecans. Preheat oven to 325*F. Using a ¼ cup ice cream scoop fill each muffin cup with batter. If you don’t use the muffin papers then you must grease and flour your muffin pan. If you are making doughnuts, grease a non-stick doughnut pan and fill each doughnut place with batter almost to the top. Bake muffins for 28- 30 minutes and doughnuts for 25 minutes. This recipe will make a dozen small cupcake size muffins and 6 doughnuts.
2 Cups additive free Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 Teaspoon additive free ground Cinnamon
1/3 Cup warm tap water
Whisk until smooth and dip or brush muffins and doughnuts with glaze. Enjoy for breakfast or treat!
