applesauce.cupcakes

I wanted to make some pumpkin cupcakes for an event my little store had last weekend. But somehow I was out of pumpkin – the horror!! As I was totally fixated on the idea of these cupcakes, I decided to modify the recipe a bit and came up with applesauce cupcakes instead. And they were pretty mind blowing.

  • Cream 4 eggs and 1 & 2/3 cup sugar in a mixing bowl
  • Add 1 1/2 cups chunky applesauce (I used the stuff I canned from local apples last year – I know. I hate myself for being such a hipster too) and 1/2 cup oil and mix
  • Add 2 cups flour, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp baking soda and stir
  • Add to lined baking tin and bake for 12-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean

Frosting:

  • Beat 3 ounces of cream cheese, 1/2 cup soft butter, 1 tsp vanilla and 2 cups confectioner’s sugar until smooth. I prefer to mix until whipped and fluffy
  • Add to ziplock bag, seal, clip corner and pipe like a professional
  • Eat remaining frosting directly from the piping bag

They turned out super moist and delicious. I almost like them better than the pumpkin muffins! Almost…
