At work we now have "Tasty Thursday" which means we have a certain food each week a bunch of people make and then we all eat it, on Thursday. This week was cupcakes and as soon as I heard that I knew what I wanted to make.
Not too long ago one of my friends sent me a recipe for some cupcakes she made that looked delicious! So last night I made them - Apple Cinnamon Key Lime Cupcakes!
Above are all the ingredients needed to make this deliciousness!
Apple Sauce, Eggs, Butter, Cream Cheese, Oil, Spice Cake mix, confectioners sugar, key lime juice (or squeezed key limes), and a whole key lime. (Cooking Spray, Cupcake holders, and Cupcake pan used)
First, you need to find a spice cake mix. I have been looking the past few months and finally found one on Monday night! THANK GOODNESS! I am pretty sure this must be a seasonal cake flavor.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. You will want to substitute apple sauce for the water. This is a Duncan Hines recipe so it called for 1 1/3 cup of apple sauce, 1/3 cup oil, and 3 eggs. Mix this together and you will have a little thicker batter than a normal cake. Follow the directions on the cake box.
Mix the cream cheese and butter together until smooth.
For extra prettiness, Michael cut up the whole key lime and placed it as garnish on the cupcakes!
A big THANKS goes out to Jessica Gardner for sharing this yummy recipe :]
