Cupcakes are individual, cake-like desserts made in a muffin tin and are usually (hopefully!) topped with frosting. Cupcakes used to be most popular for children’s birthday parties, but that’s not the case anymore! They have taken on a fresh new perspective with intricate designs (like these Succulent Cupcakes) and the super popular pull-apart cupcakes cakes. (Like this Flag Cupcake Cake)

Healthier Substitutions

If you happen to be looking for some healthier substitutions in cupcake recipes try these options:

  • Applesauce and plain yogurt are excellent fat substitutes in most recipes. Mashed ripe bananas also work well as fat substitutes if you are making carrot cake or banana cupcakes.
  • Looking for an egg substitute? 1 egg: 1/4 cup applesauce
  • When using applesauce as an egg substitute, be sure to keep the original fat that the recipe calls for. It’s best used in cakes and cupcakes as well as quick breads and muffins.
