Baby's First Applesauce Cupcakes
Ingredients
  • 2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  baking powder
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  apple pie spice
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/2  cup  butter, softened
  • 1 1/2  cups  sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 2  eggs
  • 1  cup  applesauce
  • 1/4  cup  buttermilk
  • 2 16  ounce cans  white frosting
  •  Liquid food coloring or food coloring paste in desired color
  •  Candy sprinkles, nonpareils, and candy-coated chocolate pieces
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line twenty-four 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with foil bake cups or paper bake cups. Set aside.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, apple pie spice, and baking soda. Set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add sugar and vanilla; beat until well combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

4. In a large measuring cup, combine applesauce and buttermilk. Alternately add applesauce mixture and flour mixture to butter mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined.

5. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about one-half to two-thirds full. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near centers of cakes comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans and cool thoroughly on racks.

6. Tint frosting with liquid food coloring or paste as desired. Frost cupcakes and decorate with candy sprinkles, nonpareils, and candy-coated chocolate pieces, as desired. Makes 24 cupcakes.
