Some EASY Applesauce Cupcakes to Bake

You can't beat the smell of applesauce cupcakes baking in the oven!

Applesauce Cupcakes This weekend I decided to bake some applesauce cupcakes. I found a recipe online and knew it would be a keeper! They were easy to assemble and for those with an aversion to eggs....this recipe doesn't include any.

I was sceptical at first...and right away I called my daugher for her take on a cupcake recipe with no eggs on the ingredient list. But considering that I found this recipe on the Better Homes and Gardens website...well, for me anyway...BHG is just a name that you can trust.

It was a good call, because the applesauce cupcakes were delicious. Notice that I'm speaking (writing) in the past tense. I took these to a get-together later in the day, and came back empty handed.

Applesauce Cupcakes


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1-1/3 cups applesauce
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Milk (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°F and line eighteen 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups; set aside.

In a large bowl, beat granulated sugar and shortening with an electric mixer on medium speed until well mixed. Beat in applesauce. (Mixture will appear curdled.) In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, and cloves. Beat into applesauce mixture. Stir in raisins.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full.* Bake in the preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups. Cool completely on wire rack.

To make the frosting: in a medium saucepan, combine brown sugar and butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar, the 1 tablespoon milk, and the vanilla. If necessary, stir in enough additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make spreading consistency (if frosting thickens, stir in additional milk). Frost cupcakes.

Makes 18 cupcakes..
