Applesauce Muffin – Cupcake Recipe

Looking for the tastiest muffin or just bored of cakes? Let’s try this applesauce muffin to make the world a happier place!

Applesauce muffin recipe - SunCakeMomThe first of Sir Isaac Newton’s three laws of motion, AKA Newton’s first law says:

“An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion.”

While Newton was talking about planets, stars and comets, the concept snugly fits onto organizations and within there people because they both tend to do what they’ve always done.

Once people make up their mind, they vote for the same party as they voted before without thinking which candidate represents their true value. Most families like to go back to the same holiday spots over and over again and few organizations go berserk about starting new initiatives but they think twice before killing off old ones.

No wonder, so many industries place great importance of aligning their brands with first time buyers and tailoring their services to cater their needs. Once we are converted, we seem to stick with our choice even if we don’t like it very much.

Change is hard and generally doesn’t happen unless acted upon by an external force.

While moving object by sheer force may sound fine, even if we aren’t Jedis, people don’t really behave like marbles when being pushed around and expected to roll with it. People tend to push back, despite it’s in their best interest to forge ahead.

Unfortunately, our first reaction, when something doesn’t move into the direction we want to, is simply push it harder. Although, this sometimes gets us through minor obstacles but more often than not, it will cost us as dearly as that pretentious corner in our garage, that carved the paint-job to the metal on all 4 panels of the side of the car when parked it.

These odd behavior of ours leads to all sort of confrontations from long running family feudes to nation spitting civil wars or eternal debates about muffins and cupcakes.

Applesauce muffins are exactly the same as applesauce cakes but made in a muffin form. If frosting is added on top of a muffin, it becomes a cupcake.

Essentially, using the exact same ingredients as in the applesauce cake but fill them into muffin forms, we’ll have applesauce cupcakes with all their cuteness some people are so fond of. Others don’t find them nearly as interesting, going as far as publicly despise not just the cakes but people who like them too.

Apparently, cupcakes and muffins can be as dividing as politics where at the end all of us are going to eat the same thing but capable of not just to argue about it for months but hate each other over them.

So in case someone isn’t really into muffins and cupcakes but somehow made it into this far, just jump over to the applesauce cakes to smooth out the wrinkles.

The rest of us roll on like good marbles to enjoy applesauce cake in the form we like it best, do not care what anybody else has to say about it, since we know better than the rest, muffins and cupcakes are the best.Applesauce muffin recipe - SunCakeMom
