It does work really well. You just have to be sure to make plenty of holes so that the liquid can absorb quickly or it will run down the outsides. That is messy lol! Not to mention it makes the muffin cups stick to the pan and they are harder to get out :/

I found a recipe for apple cookies yesterday. Sounds good and healthy. I thought of you when I copied it.

Apple Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 package (18-1/4 ounces) yellow cake mix
  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup finely chopped peeled apple
  • 1/2 cup raisins
Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, oats, brown sugar and cinnamon. In a small bowl, combine the egg, applesauce, apple and raisins. Stir into oats mixture and mix well.
  • Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 5 dozen.

Today I baked sunflower seed bread. I thought it would be a great opportunity to learn to use the 'raisin' setting on my bread machine, designed to allow you time to mix in raisins or nuts or whatever into your dough before rising the first time. Well, everything was going great... After several minutes of 'resting', and several minutes of 'kneading', it beeped nicely for me to add in my sunflower seeds, so I did, and then I thought, well, I obviously need to press a button to get it to continue. So, instead of looking up my bread machine's manual online and reading up on how to actually use the 'raisin' setting, I decide to use my intuition, which has NEVER been wrong before and pressed 'start' to get it to continue. Logical right? Well, unfortunately, the start button also doubles as the power button and that was the end of that cycle, short-lived as it was, may the memory of it live forever in bread machine cycle heaven.... So... I took the whole batch out of the machine, and finished kneading it with the kitchenaid, raised it, and baked it in the oven... And while it was baking, I looked online to learn how the raisin setting on my bread machine is supposed to work... oh... you don't have to press any buttons... really?! Really... After beeping, it continues the cycle on its own after one minute... really, I think that's a ridiculous design... I want a 'You May Proceed' button on my bread machine, please... is that too much to ask?
