Saucy Microwave Muffins

I wanted to experiment with the Microwave Muffin recipe so I made up a batch, using applesauce and plain white flour.  I think that white flour is still a common ingredient in many kitchens and so I thought using it may appeal to different cooks.

The muffins turned out very well.  Tasty, but not colorful of course, so for eye-appeal your toppings need to have some color.  But it is good to know that white flour will work in a pinch if you don't have whole wheat or spelt.
