Servings 12


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 3/4 cup milk *I used skim
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 19 maraschino cherries chopped into small pieces *tip- freeze them a little for easy chopping
  • Pink food coloring


  • Best to freeze the cherries a little for easier cutting.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350F, fill a regular 12 hole muffin tin with paper liners, parchment paper ones work well and usually prevent sticking.
  • Whisk eggs, stir in apple sauce, milk and vanilla.
  • Mix in the flour and baking powder. Fold in the pink food coloring, depending on what brand you are usuing just add a few drops while mixing the batter until you get a pink color.
  • Cut the cherries into small pieces, cutting each cherry into at least 6-8 little pieces.
  • Gently fold the chopped cherries into the muffin batter, then divide batter over the 12 muffin cups.
  • Bake for approx 20 minutes, or until the muffins are baked through.
