“This recipe came from a King Arthur flour catalog. I have not made them yet. I like to use their boiled apple cider instead of apple juice concentrate (available from their catalog).”

  2. Grease the wells of a pop up pan or 12 muffin cups.
  3. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and spices; set aside.
  4. Cream together the butter, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, then mix in dry ingredients, vanilla, boiled cider or apple juice concentrate, thawed; and applesauce.
  5. Stir this mixture until evenly moistened and then fold in the apple and walnuts.
  6. Transfer the batter to prepared pan.
