A delicious and moist muffin enhanced with allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, applesauce and nuts!
Note: I could not enter the butter together in the recipe, because the format would not allow me to, but the 1 stick of butter and the 3 tablespoons of butter go together in the muffin batter, just to clarify.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 12-cup muffin tin.
Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt in a bowl.
Whisk together eggs and brown sugar in a large bowl until combined well, then add butter, a little at a time, whisking until mixture is creamy.
Stir in applesauce, then fold in flour mixture until flour is just moistened. Stir in nuts and divide batter among muffins cups.
For topping, stir together all topping ingredients and sprinkle on top of muffins.
Bake until muffins are puffed and golden, about 20 minutes.
Cool in a pan on a rack 5 minutes, then remove muffins from pan and cool slightly.
