Apple Sauce Muffins

Have you ever made Apple Sauce to go with roast pork, and wondered what to do with the leftovers? Or do you buy a jar and realise you’re not going to use as much as you thought? Well,this recipe is made for you.Moist, slightly spicy and light as a feather; you can even justify having more than one as the apple sauce contains fresh apples. It almost counts as a serve of fruit!
