Applesauce Cupcakes Recipes
• 1 cup whole wheat flour
• 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

Applesauce Cupcake Recipe Directions
Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs, butter, and
applesauce. Mix for 2 minutes at slow speed. Scrape bowl. Mix at medium speed for
1 minute. Scrape bowl, and stir in chopped apples and walnuts.
Your oven should be preheated to 350 degrees. spoon cupcake batter into cupcake pans
lined with paper or foil cupcake liners. You should fill each cup approximately 1/2
to 2/3 full making sure you have the same amount of batter in each cup.
Bake your cupcakes for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center
comes out clean. Remove the applesauce cupcakes from the pan, and cool completely on
a wire rack.
Top with caramel topping or frosting and enjoy!
