They are actually just a spin off of an old favorite of mine..... Banana Cupcakes. What a versatile recipe! Click the link for some serious YUM!
- 2 1/4 Cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
- 1/2 Cup agave nectar or maple syrup
- 2/3 Cup unsweetened applesauce ****
- 1 whole egg
- 1 egg white
- 2 Cups pumpkin puree
- 1/3 Cup crushed pecans (optional)
**** I make my own applesauce with two peeled and cored apples and 2 tablespoons of filtered water blended on high speed in my Vitamix for 30 seconds (using the tamper when necessary). This makes about a cup of applesauce depending on the size of the apples.
This recipe is a new fall favorite and the applesauce makes them super moist! These wonderfully easy cake recipes make me wonder why we EVER switched to boxed cake mixes........ I'm just thinking out loud. I hope you all enjoy! :)
