Preheat oven to 400°. Whisk together baking mix, sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture.
Whisk together applesauce and next 3 ingredients in a small bowl; add to sugar mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into a lightly greased 12-cup muffin pan, filling almost completely full. Sprinkle Cinnamon Streusel Topping over batter.
Bake at 400° for 18 to 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean and tops are golden brown. Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes. Remove from pan to a wire rack.
We tested with Bisquick Original Pancake and Baking Mix.
We thought these muffins were very good! I didn't have any issues with them being dry - it made 17 muffins though, it would have been WAY too much batter for 12 - they were very large with the topping overflowing a little around the muffins on the baking pans as it was. The topping adds a great texture and flavor to the muffins and they're super simple with the use of Bisquick. We liked them with a pat of butter in the middle.
Very easy to make using the baking mix, and quick, I made one morning before work, and have made several batches for the freezer, Good to freeze and serve later, just thaw, and warm wrapped in foil in oven, for 10-15 minutes at 350, open foil, and bake another minute or two. I used my homemake applesauce (I like it chucky) and the taste was great. Makes very large nice muffins.
A great muffin! I had to use chunky cinnamon applesauce since that was the only chunky variety I could find. I think that just gave them more flavor. The batter looked a bit dry so I added an extra splash of oil and milk. It is still a very thick batter, but no worries, the muffins turn out great! I think the streusel topping is what makes the muffins so yummy!
