Spice Cake Cupcakes

This was my first attempt at Spice Cake, of any type. It’s got some similarities to the coffee cake muffins I attempted. Really only similar in the spices that they use. But, this was such a good recipe. Though I should have cut the recipe in half because it made a ton of cupcakes. The recipe was also meant to be a cake, which required me to tweak timing of how long the cupcakes were baked for.

I got the recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. This is a webpage I’ve used before for recipes. So far I don’t think I’ve really found a recipe from this site that hasn’t worked out well. I would definitely say check out what else they’ve got! I’m sure you won’t regret it. It is also surprisingly a non-dairy recipe. These cupcakes also had such a great taste and moisture that they didn’t need any frosting to help. But I’ll never say no to frosting of course. Still had great taste, texture and moisture on the second day.

Spice Cake Cupcakes

Ingredients:
– 2 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
– 2 tsp Baking Powder
– 1 tsp Baking Soda
– 1/2 tsp Salt
– 1 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
– 1 tsp Ground Ginger
– 1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
– 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
– 1 Cup Vegetable Oil
– 1 3/4 Cups Brown Sugar
– 1 Cup Apple Sauce
– 4 Large Eggs
– 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
– 1 Cup Shredded Apple

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease two muffin tin trays. Set them aside.

In a medium size mixing bowl and mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. Once well combined set aside.

In another medium size mixing bowl, mix the vegetable oil, brown sugar, and apple sauce together until well combined. Then add eggs and mix them in one at a time. Then add vanilla extract and shredded apples. Mix well.

Add the dry mixture to wet mixture ensuring it’s mixed in well. Once you’ve made sure there’s no flour hiding out in the bottom of the bowl, using a ordinary table spoon distribute mixture evenly among muffin tins.

Bake for 18 minutes or until tops are bouncy.

Take out, Cool. And enjoy!
