Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray 24 muffin cups with cooking spray or line with fluted paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugars and baking powder; mix until ingredients are blended.
  3. Add applesauce, skim milk, vanilla extract and egg substitute to flour mixture; beat with electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
  4. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling half to two-thirds full; bake 22 to 25 minutes, until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean.
  5. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely. Cupcakes can be frozen at this point.
  6. Top cupcakes with low-fat frosting or powdered sugar, or decorate with a variety of sprinkles if desired, before or after freezing.
Tips:
  • Did you forget the powdered sugar? No problem. Blend 1/2 cup sugar with 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch for a simple substitute for each 1/2 cup powdered sugar.
