  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Mix the eggs, milk, oil, applesauce, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture until the batter is just moistened.
  3. Combine the melted margarine or butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and pecans; divide it into each prepared muffin cup. Portion about 1/4 cup muffin batter into each muffin cup, on top of the pecan mixture.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Invert pan onto a piece of aluminum foil; let stand 2 minutes then remove pan.

I entered this recipe two times at our county fair and each year the judge said that while the topping was very good the muffin was very bland. No ribbons for me on this one.
