Mmm... I just had the last blueberry muffin on my kitchen table this morning!!! I'm craving for more!!!
I still haven't tried making them with Brown Sugar yet!
Apple Sauce? That's new. :)

Sher, thanks for your comment.
Blueberry muffin is my favourite and my first attempt.
I didn't have any apple sauce, thus grated a green apple and cook it slowly till mushy.
Only managed to eat one fresh out from the oven.
Rest had to be thrown away as ants were feasting on it whilst airing on the rack.:((
