Baking Time: 25 min.

Ingredients

  •    3/4  stick (6 tablespoons, 3 ounces) softened unsalted butter
  •       1  cup (7 1/2 ounces) brown sugar, light or dark
  •       2  large eggs
  • 1-1/2  cups (6-3/8 ounces) Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  •       1  teaspoon ground cinnamon (if you're using plain applesauce) or 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (if you're using cinnamon-flavored applesauce)
  •    1/4  teaspoon ground nutmeg
  •    1/2  teaspoon baking soda
  •    1/4  teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2  cups (12 ounces) applesauce

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 F.  Line a 12-cup muffin tin with papers and spray the insides, or lightly grease the muffin tin.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.

  4. Add the flour mixture to the butter/egg mixture.  Stir in applesauce until well blended.  Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan. 

  5. Bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into a cupcake comes out clean.
